    Vote For Me Because:
    I'm the right man for the job with strong conservative family values and believe in the needs of his community and the people within that community and will work hard to bring more industry, jobs, and revenue from outside our community to build a better future for our kids. It starts within the court system. I believe a County position is a serviced based obligation to the County not just a job, I have a job. As Circuit Clerk for Morgan County I plan to be involved in any aspect of local government that will help the County and it's citizens whether it be assisting in bringing in new businesses or more jobs, I'm going to advocate for those things.
