Linda Jo Moore
Position seeking: Jefferson Township Clerk (Fiscal Officer), New Paris
I am a 1975 graduate of National Trail High School, and a graduate of Miami Jacobs Career College for clerical bookkeeping. I was the village clerk of New Paris and I have been employed at the Preble Co. Sheriff’s Office for over 16 years, with 14 of those years as the fiscal officer. I am a past member of the Delta Theta Tau Sorority in New Paris, where I held several officer positions, and the past president of the Blue Star Mothers of America of Preble County Chapter. I attend the New Paris Presbyterian Church in New Paris. I am the wife of Gary Moore, and the mother of Lindsey, Lauryn and Lesley Cooper and Brad and Amy Moore.
I have been employed in several companies over the years, and at all of the companies, I have always been in accounting and/or fiscal officer positions. I am proficient in the many office procedures necessary to run an entire office. (payroll, purchase orders, accounts receivable, accounts payable, deeds and several computer programs) I feel this will provide all the necessities required for the position for which I am running. I think it will be a very interesting position and I will bring a smile and run an efficient office for the residents of Jefferson Township. I also think, it will be a fun and learning experience.
Hello, My name is Larry Adkins.
I am a candidate for Harrison Township Trustee. My wife, Jill, and I have been residents, of Harrison Township, for over 30 years.
Our adult children, Rebecca and Larry, are both graduates of Tri- County North. We have nine grandchildren.
I retired after 30 years from Dayton Public Schools in 2004. As a supervisor in the transportation department, I was in charge of maintenance of all school district vehicles. I also supervised 17 mechanics as well as communicated daily with some 200 plus bus drivers and maintenance staff. I was in charge of repairing the district buses, all size trucks, cars, vans, and mobile classrooms.
After retiring, I applied for and was hired for the position of road supervisor with Twin Township. Twin Township is directly south of Harrison Township. I oversaw the maintenance and repair of the township vehicles and roads including plowing of snow in the winter. I also oversaw the cemetery and burials. I worked closely with the township officials and the public. In 2008 I took a position with Preble County Engineers as a part time mower on the roads and also to plow snow in the winter when needed. I have a class A CDL license and can operate many different types vehicles and equipment. I still work there now.
I feel I am the best qualified for this position because of my experience. I have the knowledge and skill to work with the public and elected officials to solve problems and get projects done.
Harrison Township has some of the nicest cemeteries and roads in Preble County and if elected I will do my best to continue this.
