The runoff election is tomorrow, and I would like to ask for your support and your vote in the race for County Commission Chairman. I have been working hard to meet as many of the citizens of this county as possible and will continue to seek out the issues that are most important to you. I want to have the opportunity to work with you in finding solutions to our county’s problems and in providing a better future for all of our communities and our people.
I know that there have been questions in regard to my stance on several issues. If we’ve not been able to talk, I hope that you will please contact me with any questions about where I stand on an issue, or to learn more about who I am. Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I feel that there is no better way to get to know a person than to speak with him personally.
I understand that the commission chairman position is a full-time job, and I will commit my time to making this next commission a successful one. I will work hard as I have always done and continue to build relationships with community leaders so that we can have the progress that is right at our doorstep.
If we are to have a brighter future for our children and grandchildren, we must have a commission that is willing to work together, work professionally and strive to meet the needs of our people. I will continue to commit myself to this type of leadership.
During my time on the Scottsboro City Council, we have had many successes. These successes have been based on a team approach. By working together, the mayor and council have done well in moving our community forward. This includes achievements in recreation, industrial and commercial development as well as achieving an A+ financial rating from Standard and Poors for responsible financial management. I want to bring the same commitment for these issues to the county level.
I hope to be able to serve the people of Jackson County with leadership that will be open, transparent and honest. I have always followed my conscience and my convictions. I will remain my own person in the future, as I have in the past and continue to make decisions based on the facts presented.
I truly believe there is real opportunity for our county. We just need a vision and the leadership that can take us there. I hope to have your support on Tuesday, April 24th as we work together in building a brighter future for all of the citizens of Jackson County.
Thank you for your support!
