Why do you want the job?
“I would like to continue with the job to see some projects through that will better Blount County. I am proud of the county I live in and would like to see it progress in the future. This is my home and where I have raised my children and I would like it to be a place where they want to stay.” Candidate’s statement to voters
“The reason I want to continue this job is because I have a desire to see this county move forward. The renovation of the covered bridges, the 13.4 miles of ATRIP road improvements, helping with the grants for Palisades Parks and county schools, the Alabama Scenic River Trails Resolution, the Disaster Relief Grant, the CDBG grant for water on Straight Mountain, and the recent formation of the Economic Development Council – I am proud of all those accomplishments and would like to continue moving Blount County forward. I am asking for your vote on June 3.”
