Amber supports Schrumpf for Commissioner

By Don Amber, Whitley County Commissioner District 3

I am writing to ask the voters of Whitley County to re-elect George Schrumpf as the District 2 County Commissioner. I have dealt with county government since 1981 and have worked with several county commissioners so I can truthfully say that George is the hardest working commissioner that I've ever been associated with. In addition to serving as District 2 Commissioner since 2011 George is a business owner and serves on numerous not for profit board of directors and committees. He also serves as our representative to the Whitley County EDC. One of the key issues before us is jail overcrowding and what we're going to be able to do to remedy that situation. George serves on the Jail Task Force for Whitley County and he is becoming very knowledgeable on the subject so we need to keep him in office until a decision is reached. It is true that we (the commissioners) don't always agree on issues but wouldn't you prefer votes of 2-1 instead of 3-0 every time? We are all free thinkers and have varied opinions of issues. Thank you in advance for your vote to retain George Schrumpf as County Commissioner.
