  • Kentucky Office of Highway Safety reminds Thanksgiving travelers to wear a seat belt – every trip, every time

     FRANKFORT – With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) is joining in a national effort to send Thanksgiving travelers an important lifesaving reminder to buckle up – every trip, every time. 

  • Vote for Strange

     I have been very active in a Veterans organization in Lebanon Junction for several years. David Strange has always been a huge supporter of our veterans.

    Without David’s help, it would have been a problem having a lot of our programs over the years.

    David Strange would be a very good choice for Fourth District magistrate.

  • Vote for Schmidt

     When the Bullitt County Bar Association and Judge Elise Spainhour worked together with the Chief Justice and the Kentucky Legislature to establish a second Family Court Judge position in Bullitt County, I was excited. The need has been obvious for years. 

    I immediately thought that John Schmidt was the right person, at the right time, for the position.

  • David Strange is real deal

     Honorable,  virtuous, authentic.

    Now there are some seldom used words any more, especially when used to describe many candidates for public office.

    Happily, these are the exact words I would use to describe the character of my friend David Strange, who seeks your vote for Fourth District magistrate.

    There is nobody in Bullitt County that has worked harder to improve our community than David Strange. Period.

  • Vote for David Strange

     I encourage voters in the 4th District to elect David Strange as your new Magistrate.

    I have seen David’s unselfish devotion to the county many times over the years.  He has been a regular visitor to council meetings of all the cities since even before I was mayor.  He was never there wanting anything for himself.  He was just working to be aware, to share information, and to see how he could help others.  Those relationships and good will have helped us all.

  • Vote James Southern

     My name is Patrick Hawkins and I’d like to begin by asking a couple of quick questions...

    Do you actually care about this community that you call home?

    Are you genuinely frustrated with the “politics as usual” going on arond you?

    If your answer is “No” or “Not Really”, then go ahead and stop reading right here...

    If your honest answer is YES, then consider the following;

  • Vote John Schmidt

     I have known John for most of my life. We first met through his daughter, Stephanie, who is my oldest friend. Stephanie and I stayed classmates all the way from Kindergarten to Senior Year, and John was a constant presence in my life. 

    My relationship with the Schmidts started at St. Aloysius. During that time, I recognized John’s dedication to faith and family. John acted as a quiet but strong leader at St. A, inspiring and encouraging members of the community. 

  • Vote John Schmidt

     Election time is fast approaching and the news has made it clear our political family is in crisis.

    Unfortunately, like many families today, division and controversy is pulling the fabric of our democracy apart.

    We as voters have an opportunity to place in office people who can work with both sides. That is what Family Court Judge is all about and it is my hope John Schmidt will be that person.
