When I first made the decision to run for Magistrate in 2018 after much thought, deliberation and talking with trusted friends in the community, I was often asked,
“Ross, how will you have time to serve as Magistrate?” It has always been a favorite saying of mine that, “if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it.”
When we think of some of the most successful people we know who have accomplished the
greatest good, they are also often the busiest people we know. I feel I have dispelled any doubts anyone may have had in this area during my first term on Fiscal Court, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve you in the future.
I continue to be blessed in my private businesses. I have built a trustworthy and well-trained staff in the service company, who has continued to succeed in that business since I have been elected. Likewise, the funeral home has flourished with the help of some licensed funeral director friends and former staff who are always willing to step in when needed. The experience gained from years operating these businesses has served me well as your representative on Shelby County Fiscal Court.
I have been regularly active in the Kentucky Association of Counties and the Kentucky Magistrates & Commissioners Association. I have completed or exceeded continuing education goals for each of my years as Magistrate and pledge to continue to do so in the future. I have found these sessions highly informative and helpful in my efforts to better serve my constituents.
How did I find the time to serve? I made the time. When you called, your concerns became my concerns. I will continue to do so. I pledge to continue to listen to your concerns when you call, I pledge to continue to return your telephone calls promptly, and I pledge to continue to do my utmost to answer your questions and concerns or get you to the appropriate entity or person who can address those questions and concerns. I still feel very strongly the call to be your representative on Shelby County Fiscal Court, and I am, once again, asking for your vote on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 as Magistrate for District No. 1 in Shelby County.
