Page 2 Wednesday, October 17, 2012 The Adams County Record A Correction Dear Editor, In the process of writ- ing my last letter to the editor regarding District 9 candidates, I stated the incorrect bill number regarding birth control. It should have read House Joint Memorial 10 instead of Bill 530. Judy Boyle did however vote for HIM 10 "or the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act, which would allow insurers and employers to deny cover- age based on any moral or religious objection they may have. In other words, your ability to buy contraceptives covered by insurance would be deter- mined by your insurer or employers' religious or moral standing on birth control. 7"ordatl E'dwa/-d,5 lDe,',Ser Zollman announces his Under Sheriff Dear Editor, I would like to announce that, if elected, I will appoint Jeff Brown, a former Adams County Deputy, as my Under Sheriff.

It seemed complete- ly out of line & suspicious for the department to deny these agencies their rightful access. What is going on? Our county is in threat of losing our emer- gency response teams in this area for lack of dis- patchers & there is at least one untrained employee in the personnel that cOuld result in a tragedy or death for her lack of dispatch skills.

These issues could weigh heavily on the way you choose to vote this November. Employment issues, management issues, spending issues, safety issues, the list goes on and on. I've heard many of you say we need change, but placing one of the "good ole' boys" in that position is not change. [t is a cover up of what is truly going on. Nothing will change! I assure you of that, unless you place someone in that position who is not biased, who can fix the problem, clean up the mess, and move forward. We need management and experience. We need someone who can set a budget and live-by it. We need an experienced busi- ness manager, one who cares about employees and the public. Someone who is willing to work with the Commissioners, the County Clerk, and the employees. Not drive a wedge between these entities. This is important to Adams County. We need someone who will be there on a daily basis, who Will see what needs to be done and can man- age employees and budget. Don has made a career out of doing just that, managing. His business experience far exceeds either of the other candi- dates. He cares about your tax dollars.
