Ruby, Guccini and Osterberg

October 14, 2015

As a lifelong resident of Pike County I feel it is time for leadership to take a fresh look at governance. Our county has gone through incredible change in the last decade, with continued commercial growth, changed population demographics, criminal activity and the need for additional services. As a business owner it is clear to me that Pike County will grow and prosper, but the management of these changes is a daunting task, which sometimes requires the attention of fresh eyes and ideas.

Steve Guccini and Dave Ruby have already committed to a two-term limit, which assures fresh ideas and energy will come to the commissioners’ office regularly. Matt Osterberg has demonstrated the enthusiasm and open mindedness needed in a leader; his commitment and work ethic for Pike County is commendable.

Many residents of Pike reside in planned communities, which sometimes can be lost in local government, as they are themselves a quasi-municipality. Steve Guccini and Dave Ruby have begun conversations with the leadership of several communities to explore their needs and areas of concern in Pike County. Although many of the property owners in these communities do not vote here, attend our schools or take advantage of our services, their tax dollar makes our county whole and a great place to reside or vacation. They deserve to be heard.

These are only a few reasons I support Steve Guccini, Matt Osterberg and Dave Ruby for Pike County Commissioners.
