Barbara (BJ) Hohenstein is a 15 year resident of Whitley County. She is the successful business owner and founder of Medical Management Resources, a medical practice management consulting firm located in Columbia City that was founded 30 years ago.
"I will protect the resources our community depends on for a healthy and strong future," Hohenstein said. "The last 30 years of owning my own business and being actively involved in leading healthy living groups and organizations has prepared me for this opportunity of giving back to my community as a County Commissioner."
Hohenstein continued, "The primary role for the County Commissioner should be to support, advocate and ensure the health and safety of the people of Whitley County. There are many threatening issues among us today and many more that will arise and I am committed to ensuring these issues do not compromise the health and safety of our residents."
"The County Commissioner should be assessable and an active communications link between the residents and the county government operations," she adds. "As a 30-year business owner and over 44 years in the healthcare field along with participating as an active citizen of Whitley County, I'm constantly in touch with both citizens and business owners. I understand their concerns, needs and desires of the citizens of Whitley County."
"I believe that the foundation of any healthy and strong community should include education, communication, coordinated support operations and always doing what is best for the common good of all residents," she said.
Looking forward, Hohenstein said, "We need to be proactive to diversify Whitley County economic development.
To achieve a sustainable and healthy county we must work together to ensure the changes we make and the business growth we build be supported by strong infrastructure and is coordinated in a manner that is not counter to our county comprehensive plan."
