I am a conservative Republican who will bring integrity and character back to the office of county executive in Rhea County.
I have lived in Rhea County my entire life. In 2002, I left my career at Kayser-Roth Hosiery as maintenance technician to start my own business. I have built a successful powerwashing business and served Rhea County the past 20 years.
It is important to me to maintain an open transparent dialogue with the citizens of Rhea County and the members of all local governments.
Regardless of party affiliation, I will work to create a strong network oflocal and state representatives to work together for the good of everyone in Rhea County.
I was raised in Grandview, and my wife Michelle was raised in Graysville. Once we married, we moved to Dayton where we raised our daughters Paige and Brooklyn. I previously served as youth pastor and associate pastor. I have an Associate’s degree in Theology.
As County Executive my door will always be open and I will listen. I will work to ensure everyone has a voice and their concerns are being addressed. With your support and prayers we can make Rhea County better than it’s ever been.
Vision is necessary for success. I have a vision for Rhea County with five key points:
*Economic Development - we will continue to work together to make ourcounty an area where businesses will want to locate, and where people wantto live and raise their families.
*Budget and taxation - with inflation at an all-time high we need to manageour money wisely. With the increase in revenue from the county’s growth,we need to invest productively and focus on paying off our debt. With proper business minded leadership, we should not need to increase taxes.
*Public Safety - working with our Sheriff’s Department, Emergency Management (Volunteer Fire Departments), and our First Responders to continue providing the best safety for our citizens, providing them with the proper resources and personnel. Our drug epidemic has touched many people in our county. I will work closely with our Sheriff’s department, ourJudge, local city officials and our local churches to address this epidemic head on.
*Recreation - the Greenway project. I have a dream of building a greenway from Spring City to Graysville. This would allow everyone in our county to enjoy walking, hiking, biking, running, etc. safely and without having to leave our county to do so.
*Infrastructure - The question everyone ask the most is “Are you going to fixthe roads?” I will support the efforts of our Road Supervisor to have a fully funded department to handle the task of repairing all roads in Rhea County. I will continue to support and drive the negotiations to bring Broadband to all citizens of Rhea County.
