In support of Sosby for fiscal court

My name is JoAnn Sosby and my husband, Mike Sosby, is running for magistrate in the 3rd district of Clark County. We have been married 34 years and have five children, 11 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Mike is a graduate of George Rogers Clark High School class of 1969 and spent 30 years working at IBM/Lexmark International. Mike has been a farrier for many years and a lifelong farmer and horseman.

I feel, if elected, he will be a great magistrate and a valuable asset to Clark County. He is passionate about the position. Since deciding to run for magistrate, Mike has attended all the fiscal court meetings to familiarize himself with the judge-executive, all the magistrates and the work being done there for a complete understanding of the responsibilities. If elected, Mike is dedicated to working with the judge-executive and all the magistrates to do what’s best for the county.

The issues close to his heart are the county road department, fire departments, animal shelter, review and/or changes of old ordinances that could be outdated, the real need of better paying jobs for Clark County and the drug and prostitution issues that face our county. Mike really feels with law enforcement and the fiscal court working together,we can change these issues for the better.

On Tuesday, May 22, please consider Mike Sosby for your 3rd District Magistrate Democratic Candidate.

In support of Perdue’s re-election

I write in support of the re-election of Berl Perdue Jr. as our Clark County Sheriff.

Hundreds of young adults remember Berl Perdue as their coach, mentor and role model. Thousands of young adults equate his namesake with Shop With A Cop. The majority of Clark Countians know Sheriff Berl Perdue as a man of great integrity professionalism and commitment

As Clark County Sheriff, his leadership and record are impeccable. Berl is an efficient sheriff and a good steward of taxpayer dollars. The men and women of his office are well-trained, well-equipped, proficient, courteous and loyal.

Remember to vote May 22 and let’s re-elect Berl Perdue as our Clark County Sheriff.
