More support for Black


Rick Black is our best choice for Licking County Commissioner! Just check his record of public service which includes his seven years as a Lakewood Local School Board member serving as board president for the last two years. Rick Black was the first candidate to announce and fileto serve the people of Licking County which means he didn't decide to run after losing another election.

Rick Black is not a professional politician, he is a hard working fifth generation farmer working his family farm withhis wife Beth and three sons in Licking County. It stands to reason that he didn't move here just to run for political office.

Rick Black understands the critical need for good communication between county agencies and other governmental agencies in order to improve the quality of life for all Licking County citizens. He is someone who cares for the welfare of our people and knows our issues better than any other candidate. Rick Black doesn't need this job for a paycheck and isn't an ambitious professional politician who will move his home for political gain. Rick Black is as honest as Abe Lincoln. Rick Black needs your vote! Mike Blowers Newark
