To the editor:
I am writing to acknowledge my support for Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger for Kentucky’s next Agriculture Commissioner and to ask for your support.
As former magistrate with the Shelby County Fiscal Court, I had the privilege of serving with Rob for eight years. During that time I have witnessed how he has been able to work extremely well with all the elected officials and move our county, county services and the various programs forward even during these most challenging times, he has also opened the lines of communication between county government and the residents of our community.
Since being elected judge-executive in 2003, Rob has balanced the $17-$19 million annual county budget without cutting services or furloughing employees.
Rob’s background is extensive including growing up and working on a small dairy and tobacco farm, former fire chief/ paramedic and serving as our county’s highest elected official. Rob and his wife continue to farm in Shelby County raising beef cattle and hay.
