Vote for Michael Lee Stephens for Adair Co. CJE

To The Concerned Citizens of Adair County

The purpose of my address to you today is both personal and professional. On a professional level, I am seeking your support for the office of Adair County Judge Executive on Tuesday, May the 20th, 2014. However, on a personal level, I am speaking to you as a concerned citizen of Adair County, one that has witnessed the burden of ineffective management, and seen the dire effects of our taxpayer revenue mismanaged by our current fiscal leader. As a result, the focus of my campaign for Adair County Judge Executive will hinge on one principle . . . CHANGE!

Specifically, the change I am referring to will revolve around proven and practical methods of business for managing and spending your tax dollars. These methods will seek to carve out a new financial path for our county. Our focus will be actively pursuing new sources of revenue from increased industry and jobs, while at the same time streamlining our current tax revenue to maximize the benefit for our citizens. Additionally, I will not SUPPORT any increase in current taxpayer burdens, this includes any new, surprise, hidden, or backdoor TAXES, which we have recently been the victim of. While these goals and objectives sound simple, we can only accomplish them one way . . together. Together, we can overcome what years of neglect and ineffective management has done to our citizens, businesses, and local economy. Together, we can begin to tie back the threads of our community that have been severed with broken promises, and unfulfilled commitments. To help us fulfill the goals for our county, I will draw upon my experiences as a business owner, as well as my personal beliefs and faith to guide all decisions.
  • 40 Years of Business Experience in Adair County

  • Success in cooperating with many local area businesses

  • Prior experience in negotiating professional contracts

  • Knowledge of developing and operating fiscal budgets

  • Extensive experience in funds management
In addition to my prior business experience, I am thankful for the opportunity to live, work, and enjoy my children, and grand-children in this faithful community. Furthermore, my personal faith as a devout Christian bolsters my daily life, and impacts the root of all my decisions, both personally and professionally, as my character and judgment is deeply rooted in the core of my Christian Faith.

Join with me, by trusting me with your vote to be the next Adair County Judge Executive. I guarantee that I will begin working on Day 1 to address our pressing financial burdens, and will begin actively seeking new and innovative ways to attract industries and jobs for our local community. All of this will take place within an open community forum, while collaborating with other members of the fiscal court, local agriculture leaders, the business community, and each and every citizen. Together, we can overcome our challenges, together we can grow our workforce, together we can ease the burden for all Adair County citizens. Thank you for your time and consideration.
