[LFC Comments: We are providing a forum to all citizens running for office. Current Lake County Commissioner John Hamercheck is VERY involved in his community, and freely provides his labor to worthwhile causes outside of his duties as Commissioner. We thank him for his efforts the past four years.]
|With the election shortly upon us, I wanted to tell you about some of the things I have spearheaded over these past 4 years. I am proud to have worked to bring over $247 million worth of projects into Lake County over these past 4 years, enabling Cities and the County to invest in improving the infrastructure that is critical to maintaining, growing and attracting new businesses.|
Coinciding with this has been my efforts to boost access to skills-based training programs through facilities such as the Auburn Career Center and Lakeland Community College.Programs such as Auburn Career Center’s new telecommunicators course, which teaches their graduates the skills they need to be able to start a career with the local police, fire, and EMS dispatch centers, is just one example of the new programs we are getting accredited.
The best part is, the County has been able to invest in all of these programs without the need to raise taxes on the residents of Lake County and giving back $1.5 million from county coffers to local communities.
Investing in these skills-based programs and boosting infrastructure has been a driving force behind the continued job growth in Lake County. This entrepreneurship has not been stymied by Covid-19, with the county creating a $700,000 grant and loan program targeted at keeping small businesses open and the members of our community safely employed.

Thank you for your time and I hope I can count on your vote to continue my efforts to build a stronger community here in Lake County over these next 4 years. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. You can reach me at email@example.com
