Update, 6/14/22:

The Boone County Justice Center (BCJC) project was approved by the Council in a 4-2 vote.

Tony Teal, pictured here, spoke out in favor of the project.
 
The BCJC is a significant infrastructure project for the future of Boone County. District 4 deserves a councilman who will support the project to its successful completion without political conflict.

MY PLEDGE TO VOTERS: 
I WILL SUPPORT PUBLIC SAFETY
and
I WILL VOTE TO FUND THE BCJC

We should all agree on our core values: Public Safety and Public Education. 
These are critical to the success of Boone County, and our property values.

"Defund the Jail?"

Lebanon Reporter, Mar. 9

"[My opponent] made a motion to halt the project and not fund work already done until commissioners turned in an itemized invoice.

[Commissioner] Wolfe said halting the project would result in Boone County losing the project’s five full-time architects to another project. And Boone County would still owe the $750,000."

"Kicking the Can Down the Road"

Lebanon Reporter article Apr. 7

“… it will only cost the citizens of Boone County more money with each day we keep kicking the can down the road,” one councilman said.

Many excellent articles to provide background on the need for the Justice Center capital investment project for our shared Public Safety.
