Confused about who's running for commissioner? There are two commissioner seats on the ballot this year. Van Pratt is running against Mike Curry for one seat. Keith Collins, Bob Johnson, Kerry Steed, and Dave Stewart are running for the 2nd seat vacated by Randy Riley.
It's time for bold conservative leadership. Elect Van Pratt, the conservative choice for Clinton County Commissioner.
All of the problems that existed in Clinton in 2001 when my opponent took office, still exist today. The budget is still tight, there is no carry-over or 'rainy day fund' in spite of the increase in the sales tax. Instead of paying down county debt and getting the budget under control, government spending has increased. Mike Curry has failed to bring make the hard choices necessary in his 10+ years as county commissioner. My budget plan will reduce county government spending over the next four years to be in line with the seven next larger counties in Ohio. My plan will provide the recommended 25% budget carry-over and the reduction of the 1/2% sales tax increase.
