District 6 Still Needs Joe Graham

Sunday, July 27, 2014

  When one needs a candidate for their district commissioner that has the qualities of compassion, loyalty, ready to lend a hand, and responsible, then look no further than Joe Graham for District 6 County Commissioner. The people of District 6 have had the honor of knowing Joe Graham through neighborhood meetings and other community events where he has listened to their concerns with an open ear. Joe is always taking  notes and brings them to the County Commission's meetings. I have seen with my own eyes that even when Joe is not in County Commission meetings he is on the phone with community leaders and citizens to see what they need; then Joe writes these things down and prays for each need before bringing their concerns to the County Commission.

             The citizens of District 6 have known my friend Joe for a small amount of time. However, I have known this Joe  for a number of years. Joe and myself have been on a number of community committees, collected money to assist people through the charities we are in, and even before he was a County Commissioner Joe assisted me with the Lookout Valley Community Clean up Day. Joe has lived in District 6 for almost 35 years, and if you ask any of the people who know Joe and ask them about him  they will answer that "he is always willing to give someone a helping hand."  

            Joe is not just a great friend. However, he is also a better family man. He and his wife were high school sweethearts and have been married for 25 years. They have four great children who they have raised to have  a great ethical character. Joe's mother is where Joe learned about compassion for his fellow man and a good heart. Let's keep Joe Graham for District 6 Commissioner.
