Union, Kentucky 41091
Upon review of a Call Response Run Report #P14075729 generated by our department on Friday, May 9, 2014 where you were listed as an offender in theft of political signs from the yard of 667 Mount Zion Road in Union, Kentucky 41091, it is my distinct opinion this was a complaint of political nature and not of a criminal one.
As you might imagine, our office gets drug into these type of complaints in every electoral season and we do our best to smooth over hard feelings. But when we are presented with specifics such as in this report, we are obligated to document and investigate it to the best of our abilities.
I pray you and your family are in good health and doing well. Please do not ever hesitate to call upon my office if I can be of service.
Michael A. Helmig, Sheriff

My name is Phyllis Sparks and I am running for Boone County Commissioner District 2. I am a lifelong resident of Boone County, wife, mother, and business owner. I am past President of the Kentucky branch of the International Dyslexia Association and also served as Campaign Coordinator for Congressman Thomas Massie's successful 2012 congressional race. I have been, and will continue to be, a tireless advocate for fiscal responsibility and conservative leadership within the Republican Party.
My experience as a businesswoman, and my leadership within the Republican Party, will allow me to better serve you as Boone County Commissioner. As an outspoken advocate for fiscal responsibility, I led the effort to persuade the Fiscal Court to pass a resolution opposing tolls on the Brent Spence Bridge replacement project. I also opposed the Parks Tax and I am currently promoting greater accountability within the special taxing districts, known as "Ghost Governments", throughout the county. If elected, I will use my unique leadership qualities to rein in spending, cut tax rates and break the deadlock that currently exists within the Boone County Fiscal Court.
We have all felt the impact of the worst recession since the great depression and under the current economic environment, now is the time to elect new leaders. The final two years of President Obama's second term are going to present incredible challenges for local governments across this country. We need local leaders who will stand up, speak out, and resist unfunded federal mandates as well as unsustainable EPA regulations.
Maintaining the status quo at this critical juncture is no longer feasible. I hope you will join me in my efforts to meet the upcoming challenges our county faces by supporting me to serve as your County Commissioner in 2014.
I would like to thank you in advance for your support.
