Election season is here!

I have lived in Owensboro for over 50 years and I have not had the opportunity to support a more qualified candidate for public office than Chris Castlen. I was employed by Owensboro Public Schools for 30 years, 21 as a principal. Also, I was employed by Audubon Area Community Services as Director of Juvenile Justice Prevention Programs.

Chris is a Daviess County native and lives here in Owensboro with his wife and daughters. He graduated from Owensboro Catholic High School, and he earned both his undergraduate degree and Master of Public Administration from Western Kentucky University. Chris served as a U.S. Marine for 6 years. He was a career police officer and detective with the Owensboro Police Department, and he was chosen to attend the FBI National Academy to represent the department because of his leadership abilities. He currently works in Human Resources at Owensboro Health. Chris has seen, from experience, problems are better solved when agencies work together, not isolated, to attack the challenges of our community.

Daviess County voters have a great opportunity to vote for a candidate with a wealth of education and experience to serve as a Daviess County Commissioner and to move our community forward.  Wouldn’t you want to vote for the most highly qualified candidate, who has deep roots in Daviess County and wants to continue serving the place we call home?
