  • Vote for Laswell

     As the mayor of the city of Hebron Estates, I would like to ask you to vote for Joe E. Laswell, Third District Magistrate.

    I am a lifelong Democrat, and yes, Joe is on the other side of the aisle. However, Joe Laswell has reached across that “political aisle” and worked with me.

    He provided me with his phone number, so if I ever have a question or needed his help, I could easily get in touch with him.

  • Boos uncalled for

     I had the pleasure of attending the forum the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce  organized Thursday evening. As a citizen and voter in the county, if I were to rate the event, I would give it 10 Plus stars from the greeting and the escort by the ROTC students to the excellent quality of food provided.

    I have attended events sponsored by the Filson Club that do not excel any better the our Chamber.

  • Vote for Rayhill

     I am writing a letter to show support for a candidate running for magistrate. Joe Rayhill is the best man for the job.

    He is hard working, honest, loyal and an enthusiastic person that will do everything in  his power to make sure that the job is done properly.

    I have known Joe for several years. He is strong in his Christian beliefs and exhibits family values that are second to none. He will work hard for the families of Bullitt County to ensure that the magistrate duties are completed properly, as well as in a timely fashion.

  • Vote for Belcher

     Recently, Bullitt Countians voted for a Meade Countian candidate and Brandenburg got a four-lane divided highway.

    Then we voted for a Shelby County candidate and Shelbyville got a new road to nowhere.

    It’s time for Bullitt Countians to stand up and be counted. Vote Linda Belcher, a Bullitt Countians for Bullitt County.

  • Vote for Portman

     When faced with a decision to make in regards to our mayoral candidates, my vote goes to Faith Portman.

    I am looking for someone I can trust and someone I can relate to. Someone who I know has immeasurable integrity and a good heart.

    She has worked in our public school system for 24 years, devoted to the education of our community’s youth. I honor a person willing to commit themselves to an endeavor, such as educating a community. I’ve seen her with our students and it tells me so much about who she is.
