Hear from candidates

With just a couple of days to go before the 2015 General Election, hear from some more candidates running in contested races in Brown County.

WESTERN BROWN BOARD OF EDUCATION

JoAnn Hildebrandt

“I think we still have a lot to accomplish. I still really care about Western Brown and I want to contribute.

“I would really like to see have more satellite programs with the vocation school, working with them, and maybe build on it. There’s a lot of kids who can’t go to college now but there’s a lot of success stories with kids who aren’t college material but go on to get a good job. And I would like to lose fewer kids to open enrollment, because Western Brown has so much to offer.

“I think that in my 12 years, we’ve really got a good administration and I think everyone’s really starting to get on board. You’re asking all these employees to do all of this, I think we’re working well together, and I think we have some first class people here in the administration. I’m proud of that.”

Richey Pride

“I’ve been on the Board of Education for 12 years, I’ve taught in the public school system for 32 and a half years, and I was a guidance counselor for 20 years at a vocational school. I feel like I really know what’s going on with education.

“I just want to treat them like I’ve been treated down through the years. I just feel like I’ve got a lot to give back. My heart’s in the right place and I try to do everything I can. I really truly enjoy education. The one thing I really like at Western Brown, if there’s a grievance and parents want to come in and complain, I hear that. All the parent wants to know is that you’ve heard their complaint. Really it’s about communication.

“I think we’re moving in the right direction. I think we need to keep updated with curriculum. It changes every ⅘ years. You need to know the cutting edge of textbooks available.”

STERLING TOWNSHIP TRUSTEE

Kathy Dingus

“My husband Hank was the trustee for eight years until he got sick and wasn’t able to run anymore. I was always interested so four years ago I decided to run and I enjoyed it. I decided to run again because I wanted the opportunity to serve the public again.

“I had started some projects. We have records that are just on giant pieces of paper and I’m trying to get everything up-to-date as much as I can. Also, we are trying to get the cemetery roads paved. They’re gravel now and we’d like to have them blacktopped. We also have some ditching and culvert projects we’d like to do as well.”

Barbara Watson

“I was a trustee for eight years. I was the first woman to be a sterling township trustee. I love this community and I’m always involved in it, whether it be helping 4-H kids or doing other things. I have horses and have always supported that. I feed a lot of people on Christmas and I’m just always trying to do my part.

“I would just like to see the upkeep on the roads and ditches and all the stuff that can be done. When I was in office, we made an agreement with Mt. Orab and now we have a firehouse substation on Eastwood road.It’s half the township hall and half the fire house.

“I really care about this community. I ran a business in this community for the last 23 years, I know a lot of people on this side of Sterling Township. I do all my own work, I ran the ditcher, I ran the mower for the side of the road, I did all this myself, I was very keyed into this. I just care a lot.”
