I began working in my father’s business, Caudill’s Scrapyard on Old Flemingsburg Road (later located on Dry Creek), while in Junior High School. I have since worked as a surveryor’s Front Chainman (5 years), as a Field Rep for the Kentucky Department of Revenue (1 year), and as a deputy in the Rowan County Office of Property Valuation for over 20 years. My professional experience makes me the ideal candiate for the office of Rowan County Clerk. Married to Trina Arnett Caudill for over 25 years with two daughters Brittany & Abby Caudill. I am a member of the Morehead Shrine Club (El Hasa Shrine Temple), a Master Mason in the Phelp’s Masonic Lodge (#482), served on the Board of Directors for Gateway Homeless Coalition, Inc., served on the Rowan County Democratic Executive Committee, and a member of the International Association of Assessing Officers (Kentucky Chapter).
When I say I will faithfully execute the job of Rowan County Clerk and serve all citizens equally. Of course that means LGBTQ+ citizens. I support every American’s right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” afforded them under the laws of our nation, and I do not believe our government should discriminate against anyone for being who they are.
That said, I believe there are also many other issues and areas of improvement that need addressed by the office of County Clerk here in Rowan County, and I will continue to focus my energy on those issues in this campaign.
I’m running to promote ideas and plans to confront 3 major areas of improvement in the office of County Clerk where we are currently lacking leadership:
1. Bringing our county government into the 21st century with new technologies that will make it much easier for you to get done what you need done and go on about your day. Efficiency should be a top priority for any officer whose budget is tied to your tax dollars.
2. Implementing new strategies to lower operational costs, doing our part to help the county afford other important investments into infrastructure, recreational facilities, and other services and projects.
