We have the opportunity on Tuesday to vote to keep John Trisler as our Mercer County judge-executive. It is certainly rare and maybe unprecedented to find anyone serving as county judge-executive in Kentucky with a background comparable to that of John Trisler. John not only has a master's degree in business administration from a prestigious university, he has completed an outstanding career of business accomplishments, ending with the position of vice president of operations of Lexmark International.
John has always loved Mercer County and its people, and it is his desire to serve us and use the vast knowledge and experience that he has in business administration for the benefit of our county.
I have known John Trisler since we started kindergarten together in 1947, am proud to count him as a close friend, and I have admired the contribution he has already made to our community since he moved back here several years ago.
