Letter to the editor: U.S. House candidate to visit public at Smith House Thursday

-A A +A

We are recruiting candidates for Geoff Davis’ Congressional seat to come to Owenton to meet our residents and answer your questions. 
This is an important election and we should meet the candidates. 
The first to accept our invitation is Thomas Massie.  He is 40-years old, an electrical and mechanical engineer and businessman. 
He created a human-computer interface and founded a company which hired 70 employees. He decided to retire from business and live with his wife and four children on their farm in Lewis County where he farms and breeds cattle. 
His neighbors in Lewis County recruited him to run for judge-executive two years ago, a position he won easily.
The same people encouraged Massie to run again when Congressman Geoff Davis, also an engineer and businessman, announced his retirement. 
“I will acknowledge that I’m an unlikely candidate, coming from the private sector”, Massie said.  “But I’m concerned about the debt, the size of our government and the bailouts, and that has motivated me to run for this office.”
Meet Massie, Thursday at the Smith House Restaurant from 6 to 8 p.m. to answer any of your questions and tell you about himself. 
We hope you will attend these very important events. Come early for a good seat and perhaps purchase dinner or a delicious dessert.
We are currently working with the campaign manager of Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore to arrange a date for him to visit our city and talk to us. 
We will inform you of his background when we have him scheduled.  We are trying to reach another candidate, State Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington of Fort Wright
