Zimmerlink seeks another Fayette Commissioner term

| Monday, March 14, 2011

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."

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
