Gallagher seeks 9th District seat
Terry Gallagher

I am Terry Gallagher and my roots run deep in Warren County. This is my home and I am seeking the 9th District County Commission seat.

My wife Vicki and I raised our three daughters here and I own and have operated a business here for over 35 years. We care about this county and its future. One of my primary concerns is about the increasing debt, which could double in the next six years. I am not in favor of a tax rate increase.

Our county must plan and budget now in order to reduce future debt while using tax dollars more efficiently. Warren County’s future industrial growth depends heavily upon the available qualified labor force. There must be an open dialog between business and educators to prepare our children to meet the demands of the work force. We need an integrated vocational education program as well as a good college preparation program.

Our county is preparing to build an addition to our jail in order to accommodate the growing number of inmates. I believe we need to implement education and life skill programs as well as partnering with local businesses to provide inmates with on-the-job training for a successful reintegration into the community, thus breaking the cycle of catch and release.

I believe my education and business experience at Heather Farms Nursery provide me the tools to address these issues and represent the citizens of the 9th District of Warren County. I appreciate your vote and support.
