It is that time of year – tricks or treats. The tricks are all the letters to the editor by the old guard, good ole boys, tax, borrow, and spend Democrats. 

First TRICK is saying Bruce Kunze – who spent 8 years on Planning and Zoning Commission, spent 12 years as a County Commissioner, ran for County Judge once, ran for State Representative once, and is running for County Judge again is NOT a career politician.

Second TRICK is saying Bruce Kunze is fiscally responsible. During his 12 years as Commissioner he voted to raise property taxes, raised the insurance tax, started the county income tax, and started putting fire dues in tax bills. All those taxes weren’t enough. Kunze also increased debt 400% going from around $10 million in debt to $40 million.

Third TRICK is these people saying to pick the person not the party – when they have spent years writing letters urging people to vote for Biden, the Clintons, and Obama, over Trump and other Republicans.

I am not falling for their tricks. They may want to dress Bruce Kunze up in a costume to fool us, but I am voting for a true leader.

It will be a TREAT to vote for Charlie Castlen for County Judge. Charlie Castlen has been a successful small business owner for over 30 years. He is a proven fiscal and social conservative who has lowered property taxes, lowered insurance tax, and reduced debt back to around $10 million. Charlie Castlen voted YES to build state-of-the-art Airport Fire Station, YES to a new digital emergency radio system, and YES to bring high speed internet to all of Daviess County.

Charlie Castlen does not say yes to everything like his opponent. Charlie only supports good ideas that move the county forward.
