Look for candidate with qualifications
I am so fortunate in this day and time to find a man campaigning for Hardin County sheriff who has all the qualities that a sheriff needs and more. I’m talking about Willie Oden.
Willie is a retired sergeant major in the U.S. Army. Willie began his career as a vehicle mechanic and quickly moved up to serving in the military police. He served in the Army for 31½ years. The roles that qualify him as sheriff include director of emergency services where he was responsible for a $180 million budget and was overseer for 1,400 personnel. Willie has had six deployments and received two bronze stars. Thank you for your service, Willie.
As sheriff, Willie plans to maintain road patrol, support the Veterans Court and get this: keeping deputies in our schools. He says with the tax revenue we have, we can afford to protect our schools. Willie says the sheriff’s office will be open to the public and hopes everyone will feel comfortable with him and his staff. While applying for grants and other opportunities, he plans on an efficient and effective office. He wants his deputies to teach and mentor the county youth. Willie understands that sometimes victims need resources to restore their lives and wants his office to be ready to offer this guidance.
His website says it best: WILLIE ODEN FOR SHERIFF. Let’s elect Willie and hold him to his promises.
Keep the vision in magistrate race
They say a person’s true character comes out when things get tough. If you are like the majority of the population in Hardin County, things may be tough for you. While the future is bright with a surge in economic development activities in the area, the everyday grind that my neighbors are feeling due to record inflation among others contributors have many on edge and are full to the brim with anxiety.
Few can avoid the waver, remain positive and keep the vision alive in times of despair. That’s why Kendrick Bryan will have my vote for magistrate of District 6 in two short months. Kendrick already has invested back into his community by teaching our students — not just mandated curriculum to sharpen the mind, but the other lessons that can’t be taught from a book like integrity, compassion, values and how to just be a good human. Kendrick is a life-long resident of Hardin County, is married with two children, a graduate of Central Hardin High School and WKU.
Kendrick Bryan is a man that I have the utmost confidence in to get results, specifically improving our local roadway infrastructure and will be transparent by hosting town hall meetings so that my neighbors in District 6 can have a voice and join Kendrick to watching the vision come to life.
I’m excited for Hardin County’s future and even more excited by Kendrick Bryan being an integral part in making it happen.
