To whom it may concern:
My name is Richelle Lutz. I have chose to run in the upcoming Primary for Clinton County Commissioner District 3.
My family has been in Clinton County since 1830. Plotting out 80 acres in what is now commonly known as Boyleston. I live in the home my Great great grandfather owned and was moved to this exact site in 1897 when, my Great grandfather and his new bride first took up housekeeping.
The home was an original log home that was moved from Frankfort by horses to the site it is in now. My grandfather, and my mother were born here. I raised my son here.
My family has been ingrained in this County since it’s inception. I graduated from Frankfort High School 1972.
I moved back to Clinton County in 1995 because, I missed my home and I wanted to raise my son here.
I said all that to say, I have an embedded interest in what happens in Frankfort and Clinton County.
I am tired of politicians working so hard to make a legacy for themselves or are in office to serve their own and “the powers that be’s” needs.
I am totally against Wind Farming in Clinton County. Money, “promised” is not money in the bank. I was on the Panel in 2012 that, along with the Commissioners, stopped Wind Farming completely.
I was also part of the group effort to stop Commissioner Mike Beard from paving his own road at the Counties Cost.
I do not feel, the City OR the County wins when, municipal employees are allowed to sit on County Boards whether elected or appointed. The State legislature stopped Municipal employees from sitting on municipal boards. Now, we need legislation to stop the aforementioned, municipal employees sitting on County Boards.
I am opposed to family “legacy” appointed and elected positions. In City AND County Government today, there are many “family members” representing both entities of local government.
I want the City and County to work together to build a “Professional” drug, alcohol rehabilitation center.
One more “park” for children to find used syringes and condoms is NOT what this drug, alcohol infested County needs.
I realize, if elected, I will only be one voice however, as the song goes, “It only takes a “spark” to get a fire burning”.
Please consider me for Commissioner as, many constituents in Clinton County are ready for change.
