Hamilton County is at a crossroads

Hamilton County will soon be at a crossroads. The first Tuesday of November has always held a significant importance in the political and social makeup of villages, towns and counties. The direction of each can turn and twist with the election of board members, clerks, treasurers, supervisors and one of the most important positions in the county, “county court judge.”

To aspire to become a judge is not only one of tremendous educational commitment but is one of personal sacrifice. A judge needs to be, among many things, impartial, practical, compassionate, tolerant and wise. Balance this with justice, knowledge of the law, obligation and commitment. It is a position of true integrity not implied. A position of humility and service to one and all in a community. The restrictions of personal freedoms that come with this job are many and change the persona of one perceived by others. True service knows no ego and is guided by true sacrifice.

We have been led by such an individual and we now have an opportunity to continue with this tradition of leadership. The supervisors of the county are tasked with the administration of financial and the economic direction of a county. But the stature of a county rests with its county judge. Through thoughts and actions and decisions an elected individual reflects the values that exemplify a county.

That individual for Hamilton County is Tatiana Coffinger.
