I guess I could have told you what you already know.  How I have spent my life doing my best for you and your family. How I have part of a team that has made government smaller and more accountable. Others can talk all they want about what they would do, but my record clearly shows that I am on your side through thick and thin. So, I decided to say "Congratulations!" to you.

I knew that the media would try to make it about me. I knew that some would try to use it against me. You've seen enough failed political promises on Billboards, haven't you? So, I decided to think outside the box- you know, the place where real life happens - and simply tell you how we should look for the good in people.

As you work hard to make your dreams come true, please accept this reminder that what you do is worthy of "Congratulations!"  We all deserve a pat on the back, and that says more than all the political ads in Butler County.

New water deal between the county and Hamilton almost sealed

The city of Hamilton and Butler County have come to terms on a new water contract that will ensure the long-term stability of rates for everyone, officials said.

The new contract, that begins in 2015, calls for a county rate decrease from $2.78 per thousand gallons to $1.66, the same rate the county pays to Cincinnati for some of its customers. The city will discuss and likely vote on the new 30-year deal on Wednesday, and the county commissioners will act on March 31.

County Administrator Charlie Young said the county distributes water to 38,500 customers, including Monroe and West Chester, Fairfield, Liberty and Lemon townships, serving over 100,000 county residents and businesses. West Chester Twp. is the largest user on the county’s system and trustees there met with county officials last summer to voice their displeasure over the cost difference between the city and county water purchasers.

The city charged the county a higher rate in part because it had to expand its water treatment plant to accommodate rapid growth in areas such as Liberty and West Chester township.

Recently ranking 64th in the area for the cost of water,  the new contract establishes the long-term ability to provide affordable, high quality water to Butler County customers for decades to come.

Governor Kasich addresses Butler County crowd and touches on heroin addiction issues

At the recent Lincoln Day dinner, Governor John Kasich spoke about his commitment to do the right thing even when it may be unpopular to help those who are less fortunate than others. One of his commitments is to train every young person to be prepared to enter the workforce. He mentioned the partnerships Butler County has forged with our technical schools and universities to reach those goals. He also described the effects of the heroin epidemic on the children of addicts, the criminal justice system and the countless ways this societal problem creates long-lasting financial burdens to our taxpayers. Our schools, medical centers and communities have been challenged to absorb the costs and meet the needs of families dealing with the devastating effects of substance abuse issues. You can help.

Butler County has been building multi-agency, citizen and community alliances to create effective programs and strategies.
