Bio: Bob Fox has over 25 years of experience in professional leadership, a bachelor’s degree in engineering and has worked in co-operation with the Recorder’s office for 10 years. Fox is a fiscal and social conservative, and supports the second amendment.

Answer: It will be necessary for the Recorder’s office to continue providing excellent public service and improve document access while decreasing operating expenses. With years of technological experience working as a professional in the private sector, I will provide the conservative leadership to proactively create solutions. I believe the elected office is a full-time job requiring daily interaction with the public and I will work closely with vendors to negotiate competitive prices for services and supplies.

Bio: Lifelong Warren County resident. Married to Judge Don Oda, two children, Sammy and Donnie. 20 years as a reporter/editor/publisher for several newspapers, including the Cincinnati Enquirer. Currently serves as Clearcreek Township Fiscal Officer. Serve on State Auditor’s Advisory Council.

Answer: Public access is always a concern. The Warren County Recorder’s office has a solid reputation of providing excellent service and meeting the public’s needs. However, Warren County is behind the curve on technology.  The office needs to provide electronic filing and other upgrades to allow the public and users greater access to the records. This also will increase productivity and reduce costs. Fresh eyes on the current operation will bring cost savings.
