The general election is soon approaching, and many of us will be headed to the polls to place our votes. These votes will be on the national, state and local levels. It is my prayer that all vote, which makes our country, state and county better for all. It is also my wish that the voters not rely on so much slander and libel. This year it seems to be worse than most.
Maybe it is because I am so close to the election on the local level, and especially the position of the Gallia County Treasurer. My brother, Steve McGhee, is seeking re-election of this position.
Steve has been in the position for many years now, and he has successfully run a tight ship during this time. There are so many rumors, both verbally and written about him without facts backing them.
Steve has become a first-hand advocate for your county. He is your treasurer 24/7. His job never stops. This I know first-hand. He is constantly connecting, meeting and traveling to keep in contact for your county and for your state. The people in Columbus need to know we exist.
He runs his office with great integrity and honesty. He is an honest person, and he cares for all. Steve takes great pride in his position as the Treasurer of Gallia County.
I am not going to write about and defend the rumors, because people that know Steve know the truth. After all, it is a political race. I am, however, going to agree to one that has been mentioned.
Steve McGhee is no Bud McGhee. Well, you better believe he is no Bud McGhee because our parents taught Steve, Vicki and me to be our own person.
Steve has lived in Gallia County his whole life and has never let it or you the citizens down. We, along with our sister Vicki, were raised to give and take care of where we live. Stevie, as I call him, deserves another successful term as your Gallia County Treasurer. Please do not let him down.
Proudly for my brother and the betterment of Gallia County,
