Joe Graham Deserves Re-Election

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Observing the County Commission for more than 30 years, a few years closely, I would like to offer a recommendation for one of the seats to be filled in the August election.  

I know Joe Graham personally and can vouch for his desire to help those he represents as well as our entire county. He approaches his responsibilities with honesty and integrity and with the intention of doing the right thing.

Please join Lill and me in supporting Joe for re-election in August .  

Harold Coker

County Commission, Emeritus
