I have supported Ron Cross in all three previous Chairman’s races and will do so again. I have worked with the Chairman on many community efforts ranging from the development of the Evans Towne Center Park to getting a center turn lane on Washington Road approved by DOT. I’ve sat in countless meetings with him dealing with SPLOST, recreation projects, as well as the Growth Management Plan. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable and someone who puts our County first. Our triple AAA bond rating is a result of his leadership. Ron has been, by far, the most vocal supporter of small business in our County. Ron Cross has led the charge to adopt smart-growth policies in spite of criticism from self-serving profiteers like his opponent and his supporters. Ron has represented our County with class and dignity. It’s been a privilege to work alongside him and I look forward to four more years of success in Columbia County with Ron Cross at the helm.
