I have lived in Columbia County for thirty years and have watched and participated in the political climate of Columbia County. I have lived in the new 3rd District since moving to Columbia County and have seen the different commissioners come and go.
Until Diane Ford appeared on the scene this district, which was the 4th; have never had a commissioner to do anything for that area. Ten years ago there was NOT any county water in that district, NO recreation, and most of the roads were unpaved. Diane ran on the promise to improve the Phinizy, Leah, and Pollard Corner area of the county and she HAS done what she said she would do. We used to call an ambulance in to come into the Leah area and it would take 45 minutes and now the ambulance takes about 10 minutes or less to get into the Leah area which means a lot to all residences of that area. We also have a community center in Phinizy.
Go vote on July 20 and Vote Diane Ford back into office and let her finish what she has started for the betterment of Columbia County and the 3rd District.
