Zimmerlink seeks another Fayette Commissioner term
Incumbent Republican Commissioner Angela Zimmerlink has announced her candidacy for Fayette County Commissioner in the May 17 primary.
"I ask the citizens of Fayette County for their continued support and their vote, as I have a proven record of making decisions in the best interest of the county and for the right reasons," Zimmerlink said. "My voting record on county issues has been consistent with my belief that county government can and should operate openly and within its means and without an unnecessary burden on the taxpayers."
Zimmerlink said she has been consistent in representing residents and businesses fairly and without giving preferential treatment to the politically connected. She was first elected to office in 2004, serving as chairwoman for that four-year term.
"Much was accomplished during that time, with notable improvements which resulted in increased efficiency and cost savings," she said. "If re-elected, I will continue to maintain my conservative approach to county government."
In keeping with her commitment to the voters, Zimmerlink said she will, if re-elected, again accept only the commissioner term's starting salary and not take the yearly pay increases. She also pledged to continue to not accept campaign contributions.
"I've always appreciated the kind offers of monetary support and know those offers were made with the utmost right intentions, but with the exception of accepting $2,000 from my father-in-law for the prior elections, I declined other offers and will continue to do so."
