Hubert Brown, better known as “Brownie” to his friends, announces he will be a Democratic candidate for Hamilton County Commissioner for the seat being vacated by David Pepper. He will be filing his petitions at 2:00 p.m. at the Hamilton County Board of Elections on Monday February 1st.
Mr. Brown is a lifelong resident of Hamilton County, a graduate of Colerain High School and the University of Cincinnati. He is a retired member of Local 212 IBEW where he worked as an electrician and served several years as an officer and Business Agent before retiring in 2007.
Mr. Brown is in his 4th term as Whitewater Township Trustee (14 years) where he currently serves as the President of that body. Brownie has been active in party politics, Harrison sports, labor and conservation issues.
I believe my experience and background can make a difference at the County level. My 14 years experience in elected office is more than any of the other announced candidates and more than both Republican candidates combined.
We have a sign in the Township office, “It’s not our money!” This sign is a constant reminder that we are making decisions about the taxpayer’s money. This philosophy guides my decisions on every vote I take.
County safety and public services have to come first. Our present economic situation calls for tough choices. You are elected to make those tough choices, to lead, regardless of the political consequences.
I believe I can offer the voters a choice. Someone that can represent all of Hamilton County, not just one corner, one side of I-75 or one point of view. I look forward to a spirited debate, to meeting the voters and to listening to their concerns.
