Five Legged Table

Five Legged Table is Dr. Herman Najoli’s metaphor for describing his platform for the 2020 Hamilton County Commissioner Race.



It is time for seismic change in Hamilton County. We cannot continue to do things the same way yet expect different results. It is time to move forward from a partisan past. It is time to create policies that enable us to be first. It is time to shape a future in which we will lead as a beacon of light for other Ohio counties and as a pre-eminent county in the entire United States.

The EQUIPPED candidate

Dr. Najoli will get Hamilton County over the top by providing the public with the means of connection that attracts a highly desired future. His vision for change and platform as expressed through this metaphor of a five-legged table emerges from who he is. Read more about how Dr. Najoli is EQUIPPED. His comprehensive platform and the pillars of his campaign are future focused.


Leg 1 – MOVE

Change starts with a readiness to move. We must not fail to see the great need of the moment we find ourselves in. Dr. Najoli will prod Hamilton County to confront the past so that we can MOVE like the Good River which flows gently along the Southern edge of the county.


Elections are about the future, not the past. Dr. Najoli and his campaign are focused on how to move FORWARD. A key aspect of the change goal is to define a destination. Dr. Najoli will bring new resources for aligning ourselves to a compelling vision of the future. This will usher in new rewards.

Leg 3 – BE

As stated in the campaign announcement speech, Come to the Table, our county is on a journey toward being a perfect county. The journey to being starts with the choice to BE. The big choice for us as leaders is whether to be or not to be. Dr. Najoli’s will facilitate a commitment to BE.

Leg 4 – FIRST

To be first, we must turn the page. John F. Kennedy said, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future”. We have to embrace the future in order for us to be FIRST. Dr. Najoli will tap into the future and help people stretch to grasp that future.

Leg 5 – LEAD

Hamilton County is not where it needs to be, but it can get there very quickly. The road to the future will rise to meet us as we embrace the call to LEAD others. Dr. Najoli’s vision for the future is for Hamiltonians to pursue a common good of prosperity for all. It is our time to lead!

The Rear Right Leg

A failure to move is based on old mental maps. Dr. Najoli will bring fresh perspectives to county government. For years we have done wrong things, but it is time to do the right things. In our metaphoric image, MOVE is on the rear right leg indicating the need to do right.

The Front Right Leg

A forward-focused vision is vital for growth, prosperity, and the pursuit of happiness. Our campaign is stepping out in-front so that we can help chart a path of progress toward the change that Hamilton County desires. Moving FORWARD is about control, thinking, and improvement.

The Stump – Center Leg

A stump symbolizes an old struggle which is hard to uproot. Growing up, Dr. Najoli would uproot stumps in a valley on his father’s property and carry them uphill to the house for various projects. The table has a stump as center leg to indicate the need to BE grounded in stability.

The Front Left Leg

Being first requires the heart of a champion and the commitment to bringing champions to the table. As County Commissioner, Dr. Najoli will solve big problems, advance high-level goals, and provide deeply inspiring leadership. The cumulative effect will put our county FIRST.

The Rear Left Leg

The imagery of how a shepherd nurtures a flock of sheep is a powerful symbol of good leadership. The great shepherd is always behind the flock guiding them forward. The metaphoric image of the rear left leg symbolizes the idea of leading from behind. A public servant is wise in doing so.



The pillars of our campaign are within the metaphoric image of the five-legged table. This image, taken at Mt. Echo Park in Price Hill, captures our vision to have this message echo throughout Hamilton County.
