Election 2014: Mike Mitchum for Magistrate, Adair Co. Dist. 5

2014-03-17 - 1143 Sulphur Springs Road, Columbia, KY - Photo Campaign Photo.
To the voters of Adair County, KY

I would like to introduce myself as a Republican Candidate for Magistrate, District 5.

I am the son of Glenna Mitchum and the late Charles Mitchum, and the son-in-law of Lewis and Gayle Garrison.

My wife Amy and I have been married for 33 years. We have two grown children, Michael Mitchum (Tiffany) and Mary Burton (Levi) and we now have seven grandchildren.

I am a graduate of Adair County High School and a recent graduate of Lindsey Wilson College with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration.

I have had a long and very enjoyable career in heavy construction. Much of the experience and knowledge I have gained through my career will be invaluable as a magistrate. More importantly, the business knowledge and experience I have gained while working within the family business (Garrison Construction) will be important in the magistrate seat on fiscal court. I believe it is vital that we bring business principles and philosophies back to county government.

I have never had a desire to be a politician, but now that I have Grandchildren I have decided that I can no long stand back and complain, I need to step up to the plate and try to make a difference. I have always been told "never judge someone until you walk a mile in their shoes." So I am asking you the voters, to let me walk that mile.

Although only voters of District 5 can help me with my bid for magistrate. I want to say that if I am successful, I will always view the position as working for all Adair Countians, and I will always do my do my best to make decisions based on what's best for Adair County.

To the voters of Adair District 5 - West Columbia and Milltown Precincts, I ask for your vote and support.

Thank you.

Mike Mitchum
