The only two contested elections in the Butler County Republican primary election on May 21 are controller and jury commissioner. Unfortunately, this limited field will guarantee a low voter turnout, when important choices are to be made.

The Butler County controller manages a $196 million budget and the $140 million county pension fund. There are two candidates for this job and they could not be more different.

One, an ambitious young man, Ben Holland, is just four years out of college. The second, Karen Diehl, graduated from Slippery Rock University, is a certified public account with her own accounting firm and has 23 years of accounting and auditing experience.

The controller manages the county's tax dollars. It is important that the voters select a candidate who is capable and has the experience to maintain the fiscal well-being of the county.

I urge Butler County Republicans to go to the polls on Tuesday, May 21, and make their vote count. Vote for Karen Diehl for county controller.
