Our community. Our kids. What could be more important?
As an active voter and a concerned member of the Darke County community, I would like to strongly endorse Matt Aultman for Darke County Commissioner. Having known Matt for over 20 years, I can attest to his visionary leadership, and his innate ability to successfully work with a variety of people to make Darke County a better place to live.
The message of FFA believes that true leaders are not born; they are grown. Nothing could be truer of Matt. From his high school days as a FFA chapter officer to his active role today as an adult advisor leading our local Grade A Kids 4H chapter, he has impacted hundreds of families and kids through his willingness to give of his time and energy to empower our youth and grow true leaders.
No one will argue that we need energetic and competent people in positions of leadership in our local government. The contributions Matt has made can be seen through his successful involvement with the Chamber of Commerce and as President of the Darke County Farm Bureau. Recently Matt was a featured speaker at Wright State University Lake Campus, sharing his insights and influencing future entrepreneurs at the Emerging Agriculture Conference. His commitment to our youth and local community is also evident in his family’s scholarship dedicated to assisting students interested in business and trades.
As a father of four children, a farmer and an educator, I believe it is important to elect a leader who will stand for family values and give our children the tools, information and ability to be successful. We must protect our natural resources and preserve the rich heritage of agriculture in our county. Matt Aultman is a leader whose humble pride, confidence and strength will make a difference, and no one is better prepared to take on the this challenge.
I strongly encourage all my fellow Darke County residents to support our community and our kids with a vote for Matt Aultman. Give him the opportunity to serve as our Darke County Commissioner. You won’t be disappointed.
