Wayne Lippert Raises the Bar

Quality, capable candidate for County Recorder 

Many times, the candidates who run for office will have their best job ever if they win.  And the citizenry is the worse for it.

Occasionally, a candidate comes along who surprises and pleases you with the principle, intelligence, education, experience, talent, and ability they bring to the job.  It is so with Wayne Lippert, Republican Candidate for Hamilton County Recorder.

Just last year, Lippert ran and lost a spirited race to hold his seat on Cincinnati City Council in a year that saw a sweep by the craziest liberals ever to ascend to that body.  And it was a tremendous loss for the taxpayers, too.  Lippert was a voice of sanity on the streetcar, the insolvent retirement system, and the structurally imbalanced City budget.

County Recorder is a somewhat technical, bureaucratic job that primarily entails seeing to the proper recording and indexing of real estate and other official documents.  Lippert explains on his web site why he is running:

I am running for County Recorder to improve a long-neglected office. The Recorder's Office has not been operating at its full potential for several years, and has fallen behind many other counties in Ohio when it comes to technological advancements, customer service, and providing access to documents and services. I want to bring my skills and experience gained in the public and the private sectors to ensure it provides the highest level of service to our citizens.
The real estate records of many counties in Ohio are accepted and accessible electronically, both saving millions in staff time, and making title information available remotely.  Lippert promises to bring an aggressive approach to this advance.   

In addition, instead of cutting fat within his budget, the incumbent Recorder decided to balance his budget by reducing public access to the Recorder's Office. As if that isn't bad enough, he has publicly promised to further reduce access to records unless his budget demands are met.  Lippert has stated in no uncertain terms that he opposes such a move, and will reverse the reduced office hours if elected.  

Lippert has a Masters in Business Administration Degree in Finance from the Kogod School of Business at The American University in Washington, D.C. and worked for four years as an aide to then-Congressman Rob Portman, ultimately serving as Portman's point person on health care and federal budget issues

His commitment to public service is obvious and admirable.

In addition, Wayne is a successful entrepreneur, serving as a Principal at Truepoint, Inc., widely recognized as one of the nation's premier wealth management firms, and is a Certified Financial Planner, CFP®.

COAST proudly endorses Lippert as our next Hamilton County Recorder.

    I hear Lippert's opponent at a candidate's night last week exclaim "If you think me reducing office hours is bad now, you ain't seen nothing yet".

    This guy just doesn't get it. Shame on him.
