Public Announcement from Steve Russell:

(announcement has been written by Russell and not edited by WCLU)


“With  the recent announcement of District #2 Magistrate Ricky Spillman electing to run for Barren County Jailer, I would like to take this opportunity to formally announce my candidacy for the office of Magistrate of Barren County’s District #2.


My wife, Paula and I have lived in District #2 for the past 38 years rearing two daughters (Angie and Amy) who were educated at Austin Tracy Elementary and Barren County High School.


In the past 38 years, I have witnessed District #2’s growth both in population and infrastructure.  Our past magistrates made successful strides with their provided budgets.  However, my intent will be not only to continue their efforts, but also to take a serious look at the areas of District #2 that are now experiencing shortages compared to the majority of the district.


My past work history in law enforcement, and most recently in facilities and building with our school district, qualifies me as a pertinent and well rounded fiscal court member.  I understand the aspects of our state and federal laws, as well as how to produce and balance a working budget.  I believe in “getting the best value for your dollar” without overspending.  For the past 10 years I have had almost daily contact with construction managers and contractors in numerous projects and have developed strong working relationships with those people.  This experience will be invaluable to the fiscal court and citizens of Barren County.


If elected, I will serve the people of District #2 as their voice in our fiscal court meetings in every aspect.


All votes for Steve Russell for District #2 Magistrate are greatly valued and appreciated.”
