MARK SHARPTON IS A REAL REPUBLICAN
A Real Republican
Its about the People
Mark Sharpton decided to run for public office because he saw a need for someone to fill the position who had a real concern for people. “Rather than sitting on the sidelines and complaining, I thought I would put my beliefs in action,” he said.
As the Commissioner charged with representing the fast growing southwest side of Logan County, Sharpton has been on a mission to bring Logan County roads up to acceptable standards.
“I frequently remind myself and the employees that the citizens of the county are the real bosses. They pay our wages and we answer to them. That’s why when we receive phone calls from constituents who say, ‘I don’t mean to bother you,’ I tell them, “You’re not bothering me. I work for you. That’s why I’m here."
“Listening to citizens’ concerns and responding as promptly as possible to their requests is my responsibility,” Sharpton says. “It is also my philosophy and my pleasure."
Sharpton says he believes the concept of public service is really pretty simple. "And maybe," he adds, “If we remember on a daily basis that we serve the people, we will have a new opportunity to do so.”
