Berry states that the past eight

years have been very good ones for District 6 and Pike County.

The resurfacing and paving of several county roads (with bids soon to be let in the resurfacing of the Little Oak, County 17 and several other roads), more sheriff's deputies, and the bringing in of new businesses have been primary goals during her terms.

Other projects that have been completed during her terms are the remodeling of the County Courthouse and obtaining grants and funds for rehabilitation of the railroad between Goshen and Troy in order to keep Anderson Peanut Company in business and to prevent a loss of jobs.

If reelected, Berry wants to continue her work for the people of District 6 and Pike County, in the continued improvement of resurfacing and paving of county roads, a closer working relationship with the other towns and communities, to work closely with established businesses and to bring more businesses into Pike County and to continue to work on the litter problem and illegal dumps in the county.

She is always working to obtain grants and funds that will benefit District 6.

According to Berry, she has always had an open door policy.

"I am here to answer and to help with my constituents concerns.

I believe it is an honor and a privilege to serve as a County Commissioner."

Berry and her husband, Craig, live in the Henderson community.

She is the Administrative Assistant for Prevention and Support services for the Pike County Board of Education and Craig is self employed. They have one son and daughter-in-law, Brent and Dawn, and two grandchildren, Madison and Connor Berry.
