Merrill announces candidacy for District 3 Magistrate
Matt Merrill is a long-time Woodford County resident in his 28th year of teaching at WCHS. His leadership roles at WCHS include four terms on site-based council and department chair. A graduate of Asbury University and Georgetown College, he has a master’s degree and National Board Certification. Merrill has also served in the U.S. Army, and was mobilized during Desert Storm. He is a member of Versailles United Methodist Church, and currently pastors Owenton UMC, a church that is seen as an example of growth and vitality under his leadership.
He believes management of our county, and its growth, needs careful consideration and planning. Providing for infrastructure, services, and county programs calls for fiscal responsibility and willingness to expand personal education to meet ever-changing needs.
Accessibility to fiscal court information and transparency is a vital part of having your voice heard.
Matt has the experience, heart, and ability to be your magistrate. His work experience in the Woodford County schools, military, and the ministry show servant leadership. He will use experience and talent to protect our traditions, build a sensible future, and take care of our county workers, programs, and citizens.
