"I believe the role of a city council member is to represent the voice of Midway citizens, their interests and expressed needs.”

Growing up near Midway, Sara understands the unique charm, beauty and friendliness that Midway possesses and will work to protect and enhance those characteristics.

Sara Hicks grew up raising and showing purebred Aberdeen Angus cattle on the Hicks Brothers farm outside Midway. She has been a licensed marriage and family therapist treating the areas of substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse and family reunification for 30 years. She has a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy and a B.A. in Speech and Communications/Musical Theater from the University of Cincinnati and is a member of the Midway Presbyterian Church. In 2012 she chaired the Francisco’s Farm Arts Festival.

She is eager to improve the city’s drinking water. “We need to continue to seek current solutions to the less than desirable water quality that some residents are experiencing” she said. “We need to consult with engineers and other experts to balance or partially replace our system so that residents enjoy clear water.”
