Candidates Vying For Revenue Commissioner Title
In Campaign 2014- the race is on for Pike County Revenue Commissioner.
Curtis Blair's kept the title for 17 years and he wants to stay as the county's tax collector. While it's been more than a decade, he says his office isn't outdated. And says they've implemented online resources for county residents.
But a political newcomer is hoping to add revenue commissioner to his resume. Bo Weed is a businessman and pastor, and now the republican candidate in the race. He says he wants to build an office with honesty and integrity. And wants to treat everyone who walks in the door with respect. He also says conservative values will make the county and our country more financially responsible.
Bo Weed, (R) Revenue Commissioner Candidate said, "I believe I bring a new passion and energy to the office. With the right view of conservative ideology because I think liberalism has really done great damage to our country."
Curtis Blair, (D) Revenue Commissioner said, "I've run this office with honesty and efficiency for the past 17 years and I will continue to run this office in that manner. I enjoy working with the people. I believe in being fair to all the tax payers and giving them an honest shake."
Both candidates told each other they wanted a clean campaign and so far both appear to be keeping their word.
