William R. “Bill” Warnock filed petitions to run as a Republican for the office of Scioto County recorder.
“The Recorder’s Office generates and manages records related to land ownership in the county,” Warnock said. “Our local office is in need of modernization.”
Warnock is co-founder and general manager of the Community Common newspaper, which is now owned by Heartland Publications, the parent company of the Portsmouth Daily Times.
“Having managed the computerization of systems in news, advertising and accounting for local business in the past, I can bring that experience to this position and do it with a responsible budget,” Warnock said. “The county recorder has a responsibility to the taxpayers to maintain good stewardship of their property records. I have the experience, vision and dedication needed to not only run the office now but to build a foundation of both technology and accountability for its future management for all the residents of our county.”
Warnock is a lifelong resident of Scioto County and recently completed his sixth term on the Clay Local School Board of Education and has served on other various other boards, including the Southern Ohio Growth Partnership, Portsmouth Area Chamber of Commerce, Portsmouth Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and Portsmouth Murals Association.
Warnock’s website, www.warnockforrecorder.com, is under construction. Once live, it will contain information about him and his campaign.
