Barrera: Vote for the Paint Valley levy


A critically important issue which voters will decide is the Paint Valley Mental Health & Prevention Levy. Children and families in our community need the levy in times of crisis, when they have no other counseling or treatment options, and no other place to turn.

Serving all residents in a five-county district including Fayette, Highland, Pickaway, Pike and Ross counties, the Paint Valley Mental Health & Prevention Levy ensures a safety net of mental health and counseling services available to working families who cannot afford the treatment.

Sheriff’s deputies are on the front lines. We see the impact drug abuse has on our communities. We see the trauma the families and children live through. This is why I support the mental health, counseling and prevention services provided by the Paint Valley Mental Health & Prevention Levy.

For approximately $3 per month per homeowner, we can make a positive impact in our community to assist in taking care of families and children who deserve the prevention and counseling services.

On May 2nd – and by absentee votes – I am asking for your support of these essential services.

I ask that you vote FOR the Paint Valley Mental Health & Prevention Levy.

Thank you for your consideration and support.

Donnie Barrera

Highland County sheriff
