I would like to take this opportunity to tell you why I think it is time to change the direction that this county has been heading.
My wife and I have chosen to make Walker County our "forever home" and I can no longer sit idly by and watch the current administration ignore the needs and the voices of the people that live here and work hard to support this county.
I feel that it is also time to stop "passing the torch" to the next generation of the affluent that have ties to each other through business and political ventures. This county cannot continue down the same path. If we continue to elect new politicians that have lost touch with the average working man and woman, we can not expect to see a different result.
I am NOT a politician. Coming from a very middle class family, I have had to struggle to find my own path in this life. I feel very strongly that the lessons I have learned along the way through work and education give me an advantage of understanding the hardships that people experience in their daily lives.
This county can be put on the path to prosperity by having someone who understands that the commissioner's job is to run Walker County in a more efficient manner and not expect the people who support the county, through their taxes, to continue to pay more and more out of their budget and in return have less
and less for their families.
The financial problems of this county can not be fixed overnight but together we can begin to change the direction so that the people of Walker County once again have their voice.
Change can only be brought about with your help!
Any donation of time or money will greatly improve the capability of this campaign to get the message out there that the people of Walker County want a change!
