Yeah, in general I feel like anybody that comes out of Boone County I'd be skeptical of, because they probably see Gallatin County as po dunk town, and have their little laughs up there in rich people's ville. But when it comes to District Judges, the important thing to me is that the Judge is fair, that they take the time to analyze the case, searching for the truth, and that the follow-up with why they made their decision, or the main reason they did. And I'm also curious about how come there are no court costs in Trimble County, yet in Grant and Gallatin, they add over $100 onto your measley $25 seat belt fine, or whatever crime you are charged with. I don't think you should have to pay any court costs whatsoever. Will any of these District Judges change that?

the fine for seat belt/s is nothing more then to collect more money off people, just a nother reason for the state boy/s to set in town and get the local/s,

The State Boys is making sure they are harming folks that never harmed anybody else, because we live in a police state. We are on lockdown. Anything they say goes, and if you don't like it, well just go to Frankfort and change the laws because that's always what the cops say when they are enforcing the petty laws. Meanwhile, the Criminal Syndicate within the local Police Department breaks whatever laws they choose to break, and then harm others with enforcing petty issues. When the murders are actually solved, and the burglaries, the big crime, then I'll agree that the police are doing some good. But until that day, the only thing the police are teaching everybody in America is "f@ck with us, and get f@cked up" which is exactly what you'd expect from Nazis, or some tribal or gang warzone, not somebody who wears a badge pretending to "protect and serve" the Constitution and the Public, when in reality, the Public is Public Enemy #1. But it's the evil police's fault. Where are the good decent honest human beings out here?

do you know how stop a "police state" in its tracks? the answer is follow the laws. I am however against road blocks. if a cop does pull you over how can the take you to jail for not doing a breathalyzer test that violates your 4th and 5th amendment. search and seizure and giving the state evidence against yourself

George W. Bush didn't follow the law, neither does a few in the Warsaw Police Department. I doubt whether you follow the law or not has anything to do with whether or not a police officer will harass you. When a cop is tailgating you, how do you feel? Like they are out there protecting and serving? Like they care about your well-being? And road blocks is an excellent example. So when the Police are breaking our Constitutional Laws and Rights, then who do we go to? If the Police police us, who polices the police?

seem/s to me they make new law/s so they more reason to pull you over and get you money, as for the post that said follow the law/s they make so many new one/s to get you for something, how do you keep up with them,in my opinion every law that is new is not for the good of the people, it is good for the court/s to get your money, there has to be a stoping place somewhere on the law/s that they can give you a ticket for driving your car, to many,we have our right took away every day,

This is an important question. I believe the Judicial Branch is one of the more powerful institutions in Gallatin County. They spend lots of money for their dog-and-pony show, more than any organized group around, as far as I know. This is an important race. Right now Mr. Huddleston is winning this poll, but it's a close race, with Mr. Brueggeman close behind. So it's a 2 person race, even though there's 2 other Boone County people in this face in addition to the 3 listed above.

johnny law-- who are the "uneducated idiots" you are referring to?
Johnny Masters-- you said: "anybody that comes out of Boone County...probably see Gallatin County as po dunk town, and have their little laughs up there in rich people's ville." I'm from Boone County and where I live is about as far as one can get from "rich people's ville." As for the Boone County resident that is running in this race, you can go to his website and learn of his background, which was far from privileged. He's about as down-to-earth as one can get.

For anyone who thinks that Rick Brueggemann is a rich man from Boone County, read the following. He left the public school system in the 8th grade, to work in a salvage yard and a garbage company. He found law books in the garbage one day and began reading them, got his GED and went to school at night while supporting his growing family by day.

He went on to graduate at the top of his class from Chase Law School and as one of his professors noted, won every award the school had to offer! Talk about humble beginnings! This man knows what it is to struggle hard and work for a living. He is not a career politician, looking for a political pass to squeeze taxpayers of their money. He has fought his entire adult life to lower taxes and knows the hardship of supporting a family. His story was so inspirational that upon graduation from law school, he was featured on Channel 12 news and in the Ky post. This is a man who loves the law and the working man!

Rick found a real treasure in some of that trash he loaded: a set discarded law books! He developed a keen interest in the law. He would read every law related article that crossed his path.

Rick’s study of law reaped consequences at work. Kentucky was revolutionizing its solid waste regulations. It was the dawning of the modern waste industry. Rick obtained and read both the existing and proposed regulations. His input on such issues led him from handling the trash to managing it—and becoming a certified landfill manager by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. At age 25, Rick was elected by the members of the National Solid Waste Management Association to be the chairman for Kentucky’s landfills. He worked directly with attorneys for both his employer and those representing the waste industry for the state at large. Rick was involved in bringing several successful constitutional challenges, one in federal and others in state courts.

Despite Rick’s interest in the law, the idea of pursuing a legal career was just a dream. It didn’t seem possible given such a humble background and only an eighth grade education. But one day, although Rick had never shared his dream of going to law school, an attorney for the company suggested that he consider law school. He took the advice, changing the dream to a goal. And so the struggle began: first tackling the GED, then pursuing a bachelor’s degree to meet law school admissions requirements—all while working full time to support his own growing family. At that time Rick and Patti (a full time mom) had six children, ranging from newborn to 10 years. Rick obtained his Bachelors’ degree in 2001. In 2004, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Salmon P. Chase College of Law. Within a year of his graduation, he left his position with Bavarian as in-house counsel and joined the firm of Hemmer Pangburn and DeFrank PLLC as an associate.

Even with such a full plate, Rick found time for community involvement. He co-founded the League of Kentucky Property Owners and served as its first president. Rick was elected supervisor for the Boone County Conservation District. He also served as founding member to establish a chapter of the Federalist Society at the law school.

He hopes to expand his service to our Constitution by serving as your next District Judge and promoting “justice for all.”

Not a man who looks down on others for their humble lives. Not only does he take pride in his own humble background, he has a great love for families who struggle in today's harsh economy! You couldn't get a better man as district judge!

Elect Rick Brueggemann for your district judge, you won't regret it!

Ricks family owned the trash truck that he quit school to work on. I commend him for going back and finishing his education. As for some of the other candidates they had to work as they went through law school every day after class, they didn't have a wealthy family to pay the way.

Please get your story straight before posting!
Rick's family did not OWN the company. It was a relative who owned it and he got a job picking up trash! Does that sound like the owners son???

By the way, the salvage yard he worked at after quiting school was not owned by a relative. He worked for Patrick's Auto Parts, no relation at all! Mr. Patrick is one of those endorsing Rick.
Rick’s story is not one of privilege. He worked his way out of the trenches. But as Rick will tell you, he learned some of the most valuable lessons in life while pulling parts and fighting wasps in a junk yard. Rick worked full time beginning at the age of 14. For over fifteen years, he worked in a salvage yard, an auto repair shop, and then picked up garbage. While working full time, Rick acquired his GED, received his B.A. in History magna cum laude, and his Juris Doctorate summa cum laude, graduating second in his class at Salmon P. Chase, College of Law.

If "more to the story" a person not willing to provide his name on this forum knows the real story let him provide it, rather than dishing up falsehoods. If "more to the story" wants to provide the stories of other candidates, with a more humble background and greater achievements than that of Rick Brueggemann, let him do that. "More to the story" is just another of those mud slingers who probably works for somebody else's campaign by trying to discredit the others.
