Brenda Lewis

To the editor:

Brenda Lewis has been my friend for 25 years and I personally know she is well qualified for this job. She will work diligently to fulfill this position in an honest and upright manner; she has and will be fair at all times. She is truly a lifelong conservative Republican seeking her second term to this office. I have heard and seen the outstanding job she has done in her first term and she deserves another term in office as she represents three counties who praise the work she has done. She has been endorsed by our Greene County Elected Officials, the Greene County Central Committee, two Greene County Commissioners, County Clerk of Courts, County Recorder, County Auditor, County Engineer, and Sheriff Gene Fisher. This is proof she has done an outstanding job when so many endorse her.

Currently, she is the Central Committee Chairperson for the Greene County Republican Party, and a member of the Greene County Board of Elections. She spent 32 years teaching at Beavercreek where she was honored as an Outstanding Elementary Teacher of America and she received the Martha Holding Jennings Grant for Outstanding Educator. For the past nine years, she was responsible for setting up, organizing, and staffing the Greene County Republican Headquarters and the GOP tent at the Greene County Fair. I have watched this lady and friend give hours and hours of her time for so many good causes; all without remuneration just because she is a dedicated conservative Republican and strives to do her best to make us all be proud to be citizens of our county.

Brenda is a member of the Faith Community United Methodist Church. She is married to Ron L. Lewis for 46 years, they have two children and six grandchildren whom she adores. Lack of space prevents my telling you many more good things about Brenda and why she is qualified beyond the shadow of a doubt to be our State Central Chairperson. When you go to vote on May 6, would you please give your vote to my qualified and worthy friend, Brenda Lewis?

To the editor:

I am a fellow Republican and I have been a friend of Brenda Lewis for many years. Brenda is seeking another term as State Committee Woman in the 10th Congressional District. It is my pleasure to endorse Brenda to be reelected for this office.

Brenda has been a resident of Greene County for 49 years and has taken an active role in the Republican Party for most of those years. She has worked tirelessly for the party helping candidates on the National, State, and Local level to get elected. Brenda is member of the Greene, Clark, and Madison County Women’s Clubs in the 10th district and she attends their meetings regularly. She talks frequently with the State party staff to assess the needs of the district. Brenda has received numerous awards for her outstanding leadership in the Republican Party.

Her goal for another term is to recruit strong, electable candidates for the 10th Congressional District. Her outstanding support for the party and the candidates seeking to be elected is proof enough to elect Brenda for another term. Brenda welcomes the opportunity to serve and asks for your support and vote in the May 6 primary election.

Encouraging a YES

vote on Issue One

Dear Editor:

I encourage your readers to vote YES on state Issue One on May 6.

State Issue One renews a very popular and effective bond program. The program provides grants and loans to local governments to construct local infrastructure. Your vote won’t increase your taxes.

The Village of Plain City has taken advantage of the program and has received approximately $1.5 million to help fund 10 projects. Most of those have been sewer and waterline projects.

The Richwood Banking Company is proud of being a homegrown Union County business and proud to have a branch bank in Plain City.

By upgrading and improving sewers and waterlines, Plain City is helping to encourage more economic development which creates jobs and benefits all of us.

Remember to vote YES on state Issue One.

Dear Editor:

I urge all your readers to vote YES on Issue One.

Issue One represents the third renewal of the State Capital Improvement Program (SCIP) benefiting local governments including counties, cities, villages and townships.

Eligible projects include roads and streets, bridges and culverts, water and wastewater treatment plants, water and sewer lines, storm sewers, etc.

Since its first approval in 1987, the SCIP program has brought over $13 million into Union County in support of nearly $26 million in local public infrastructure projects.

Renewal of the program does not involve any new taxes. The dollars needed to support the program are already included in the biennial state budgets.

Please join me in voting YES on Issue One.

All school

levies are a YES

Dear Editor:

I am writing this note to express my hopes that all school levies in Madison County pass this May 6. As voters, we have the ability and responsibility to give our children the best possible education, and education is not free.

Someone we do not know, many years ago, paid for the schools that educated the children that are now in their retirement years, and some who are hoping to one day get there. We need to thank these nameless folks who believed in the power of a good education, no matter what the cost. I would hope that the voters in our districts would want to leave that same powerful legacy, to our current and future students. When people do acts of community, say plant a tree for example, you do this for the people in the past, present and future. Please, vote yes for our kids, the students of the past, present and future will greatly appreciate it. Then after you vote, go plant a tree.
