I served in this office until I resigned to move back to "good old Holmes County." I fee! that I am the best qualified candidate for this office - with plenty of experience. If you will go to the polls on Sept. 25th and vote for me, I will do my best to serve you in a man ner that you will never regret that you elected me as your Jus tice of Peace.
