Jesse Brewer in his own words:
I am a businessman who moved my family to Boone County in 2003, having grown up in Cincinnati in a single parent household. After a short time, I knew from first-hand experience that Boone County offered the quality of life I was looking for in a community to raise my children. Initially, I moved to Northern Kentucky to pursue a career in law enforcement in 2006. As the father of three small children, I made the decision I wanted to be more involved in their formative years and determined it was best for me to leave law enforcement in order to expand my involvement in real estate investment and property management.
Being an entrepreneur, with responsibility for managing my investments and being entrusted to manage the investments of others, has taught me that you need to make sound decisions based on solid planning, effective financial management, and sound personnel management principles. In order to be successful, it is critical to make the right decision based on economic conditions after carefully considering their overall impact on everyone, not just one group or person.
In addition to running my own business, I have spent the past several years sharing my real estate management plans with others through educational seminars and speaking engagements across the country. I have also authored several books on investment real estate, being a landlord, and investing in and restoring foreclosure properties to generate return and increase their taxable value.
I am the proud father of three children who attend the Boone County Schools, one at each level: high school, middle school, and elementary school. I make it a priority to be involved in all aspects of their education, including their after school and extra curricular activities. It has been personally rewarding that I have been fortunate enough to participate in many programs benefiting the children of Boone County, including Junior Achievement, youth football, and as a member of the parent advisory board that assists with fundraising and other needs for our kids to have successful athletic programs. Through my involvement with programs such as these, I see first-hand how busy our families are and what is most important to families with young children in Boone County.
For the last seven years, I have managed a program I created called Landlord Santa. Landlord Santa is a privately funded event to help underprivileged families during the holiday season by providing necessities such as winter coats, hats, gloves and even holiday gifts for themselves or their families. Each year the event has grown bigger and bigger, becoming an event we look forward to putting on every holiday season.
To put it simply, I am relatively new to politics, but I am not new to community service. I want to build bridges into the future by bringing like-minded people together to achieve positive results. I want my kids to be proud to call Boone County their home, and I hope they will choose to stay here when they complete their education.
We need community leaders with the vision, energy, and enthusiasm to take Boone County to greater heights. I am Jesse Brewer, I am proud to call Boone County home, I am proud to announce my candidacy for Boone County Commissioner, and would sincerely appreciate your vote and support.
