ELDRIDGE Magistrate District 6
I will be serving as your Oldham County Magistrate for District 6.
I was born here in 1959 and grew up in what was then the outskirts of LaGrange, but is now an empty Movie Warehouse. I have spent a lifetime here, my wife and I both own businesses here, and I want to use those 50 years of experience to give you able representation on Oldham County Fiscal Court.
I believe in government that is fiscally responsible and believe that the balanced budget we are currently under must be continued. I believe that government truly is by the people and for the people, not paid for by the people but for the few.
If you review my “About me” page, you will see that I have been involved with many Oldham County organizations. Through those I worked with a diverse group of people and in many contexts. I believe that working well with others is a big part of representing you on fiscal court.
I believe that it is time that the magistrates and fiscal court spend their time acting on behalf of Oldham Countians instead of being involved in and responding to politics and posturing. I will work for you, exploring the problems that come up, questioning when in doubt of the answers and working for solutions when I disagree with those proposed.
Great decisions lie ahead. These challenging times demand that we make changes. In order to move forward, the county leadership must work together, focusing on the county’s strengths and weaknesses in a concerted effort to find the answers to the tough questions coming.
There will be at least 6 new magistrates, a new County Judge-Executive, and on a sad note, a new County Attorney. While the voters clearly wanted change, this much change at once will be chaos unless the Court works together. My experience speaks to my ability to work with others.
I appreciate your support and thank you for your faith in electing me.
I depend on and respect your input. Please visit the support or contact pages to find out how to reach me. I welcome your comments, questions, and ideas along with your willingness to support District 6.
