I would like to encourage Centre County voters to elect Chris Exarchos as County Commissioner.
Chris has previously served as commissioner and has a proven record of achievement. Chris gets things done, effectively, efficiently… without corruption or runaway costs.
With Chris taxes don’t go up every year, he’s held eight years of past county management without tax increases. By contrast another past Commissioner, Vicky Wedler, raised our taxes 4 years in a row.
He would not have approved the NEW $5 surcharge for our auto registration — because Centre County has no responsibility for road and bridge maintenance costs. Ask yourself, where is that money going?
We don’t have the Center Crest debacle making headlines any longer, or the 911 emergency radio system rebuild which was originally budgeted for $21 Million with inevitable cost over runs. No, that’s because he and Steve Dershem got it built for $16 Million, and our new system works as it was supposed to… Centre Crest — is now running efficiently and is fiscally sound.
Chris is not a flashy politician promising us all magic unicorn dust… he’s a pragmatic bottom-line experienced business man who actually gets things done. And once done, they just work… for all of us.
Managing Center County is an $80 million / year enterprise employing 500 people, it’s a significant leadership challenge we all pay the costs of… we need a proven leader. Please join me in voting for Chris Exarchos for County Commissioner.
