The future is now. My fellow citizens and neighbors of Levy County, these are some hard times for our country, state and our county. Unemployment has crippled our families. The lack of foresight threatens our ability to provide services while keeping taxes low. Our water must be kept clean and in good supply to meet our needs, now and in the future. It is not a question of how we accomplish these tasks — we already know how. It is a question of who can get this accomplished.
My name is Joe Cino and I am pleased to announce my candidacy to be your next elected County Commissioner from District No. 3. I have watched from the sidelines as counties to the south of us struggled with these issues and chose to keep putting them on the back burner. Folks, I can watch no longer and we can not wait any longer to take action.
The economy is living proof that we must make decisions on the county commission that will put the needs of the citizens first. I am willing to work to bring jobs to Levy County.
The tax-base must be supported and grown, so that the burden of funding services is both reasonable and affordable. Water quality and quantity must be a consideration.
