Nuxhall family serving as honorary campaign leaders

The Nuxhall Family: Honorary campaign leaders

For the second time, the Nuxhall family is serving as honorary leaders of the senior services levy (Issue 13) which will be on the Nov. 3 ballot for voters in Butler County.

Kim Nuxhall, his wife Bonnie, brother Phil, and mother Donzetta, have been long-time supporters of the levy that provides services such as Meals on Wheels and transportation for frail seniors. They also served as honorary campaign leaders in 2010. A family photo of the Nuxhalls is on campaign literature and billboards.

Helping Butler County residents was a top priority for his late father, Joe Nuxhall, Kim Nuxhall said. “It’s what he believed in.”

The senior services levy helps Butler County’s frail older adults to remain independent in their homes via services provided through the Elderly Services Program. The program served more than 3,800 seniors in 2014. The levy is a flat renewal and will not increase taxes.

Volunteers for the levy campaign will be holding a “Honk In” at key traffic intersections around the county on Friday October 30. A tradition for the senior services campaign, the Honk In encourages voters to show their support for the issue by honking their horns when they pass by the volunteers waving signs.

Volunteers are scheduled for 12-1 p.m. and 4:30-6 p.m. at high-traffic intersections in West Chester, Hamilton, Fairfield, Fairfield Township, Middletown, Monroe, Liberty Township, and Oxford.
