My name is Connie Grubbs and I am the only Democratic candidate for any Campbell County Commissioner seat. As a first-time candidate, running for office is not something I saw myself doing until recently. Now that I have made the decision, it just seems natural. My reasons for running are many, but they all revolve around justice. We are looking at the first generation in America to not do as well as their parents. I will fight for economic justice. I am so proud to have earned endorsements from several local labor unions. They know I stand for working families and that I want a county that values work over wealth to reignite the American Dream for all our people. Political justice, otherwise known as transparency, is another reason I decided to run. We need our government to have people elected from all walks of life, bringing fresh ideas and different perspectives to the table. And finally, I will advocate for health justice. This covers a broad spectrum, including everything from Medicaid to prisons to the opioid crisis.
In my life, I have always risen to challenges through hard work, people skills, and intelligence. I do best when I am challenged, and I’ve come to learn that anything worth achieving must be hard earned. I cannot wait to get to work for the people of Campbell County and to serve as one of your county commissioners.
