Because this is a primary election, it is more difficult to know who to vote for. The Shelby County GOP won't be sending a mail out with suggestions on who to vote for. Bryant took the time to research the candidates and wrote down each position with who we were voting for. I am sharing it here to encourage you to vote on May 4. You can also go to the Shelby County GOP website and look up each candidate.
For County Mayor, we support Mark Luttrell
For Probate Court Clerk, we support our friend and Republican Paul BoydFor County Commission District 4, Position 2 - Wyatt Bunker. Wyatt is in our Bible Fellowship class, and submitted a proposal last term to reduce property taxes by $3M.
Here are a few others:
For Trustee, David Lenoir
Register, Tom Leatherwood
County Clerk, Wayne Mashburn
Criminal Court Clerk, Kevin Key
County Commission District 4 Position 1, John Pellicciotti. Pellicciotti is very outspoken against consolidation.
County Commission District 4 Position 3, Terry Roland
Some positions such as Circuit Court Clerk and Juvenile Court Clerk only have 1 candidate running, so they will obviously be elected. If Bryant and I don't know enough about a candidate, we will not vote for them just because they are the only one running. For example, Bunker's proposal to reduce property taxes was turned down by two Republicans, Mike Ritz and Mike Carpenter. Mike Ritz is the only one running for County Commission District 1, Position 1. If he is in your district, do not vote for him.
Also, Mike Carpenter is running against Joe Baier for County Commission District 1, Position 3. Do not vote Carpenter. Vote Joe Baier. Officials must be held responsible for their decisions in office, even if they are "Republicans."
