Hear from more candidates

We’re less than one week from the election, and there are still a number of competitive races that will be decided at the ballot box. After last week’s candidate preview, hear from a number of other candidates running for public office, whether as mayor, village council, or school board.

Pleasant Township Trustee

Gary Gray

“A few years ago I saw some things going on and I thought I could run and do some things about it. I want to improve the conditions of the roads. I want all the roads black topped, cemeteries kept nice, and keep the roads safe in the winter time for emergency vehicles. The only thing I would tell the voters is I would treat everyone fairly, listen to their comments and concerns, and do my job to the best of my ability.”

Eastern Brown School Board of Education

Lowell Richey

“I taught in the district for 35 years, I’m part of the community, I had two sons graduate and my wife still works in the district, and it’s my time now to give back to the community after all they’ve given to me. It’s for the kids.

“As a school board member I would like to set goals and a vision for the community and students. You want to help establish a vision and goals to reach that vision as a district. I would like to help have better communication between the district between the administration, board of education, staff, both certified and classified. I hope we continue to improve our test scores to beat the expectations of the state of Ohio, have more kids going to college, and I also believe that more kids should be going to trade schools, because not everyone’s meant to go to college. There’s a lot of business opportunities out there for kids who don’t go to college.”

Martin Yockey

“I’ve got a vested interest in the district. I’ve lived here all my life, my kids raised here, and I want the district to continue to be on top as far as academic, athletic, and extra curriculars. I have a real good interest in the kids and want them to get the best of what we can get them. We’ve got a real excellent staff and we want to make things better.

“I want to continue to help these kids out, especially high school or junior high school for career opportunities they may receive when they graduate. I want to help them even more. Maybe we can even offer them another foreign language, have more options. We have Spanish and possibly French offered.

“I’d like to see more offered, because sometimes that helps them out in the future. To help even in the junior high school, to try and focus on what they’re thinking for the future. Our guidance counselors get so overwhelmed with paperwork and we need to sit down and be more 1-on-1 with the kids and find out what they want to do with their future. Maybe we can get a hold of that at an earlier year instead of waiting until we’re junior or senior year.

“I’ve always been a Warrior of Eastern and always will be. I just enjoy working with everybody in the district.”
