Steve Jacob Education & Experience:

My business education and career positions have greatly helped me in my service on the Boone County Council.

My management style in business has always been as a consensus builder who seeks a point of agreement between all parties.

I put this same consensus-building philosophy to work in my position on the County Council for the good of Boone County.

As Police Chief in Boone County, I am proud to call Steve Jacob, Councilman, but more importantly, a good friend to the residents of Boone County and I am PROUD to support him for our Boone County Council!

The Boone County Council, under Steve's leadership did a yeoman's job of steering us through difficult times and he continues to do so today. I think Boone County, under Steve's leadership is in good financial condition.

Steve thank you for all of your help with the mental health legislation we passed at the Statehouse this year. You’re a great public servant!

"Having worked with Steve Jacob on the Boone County Council, I have observed first hand how he uses his experience and leadership to bring people together with a consensus building approach to management. In addition, Steve's transparency and integrity are above reproach. I strongly urge the Boone County community to re-elect Steve Jacob."
