"I am excited to announce my candidacy for Wilson County Assessor of Property. My family and I have deep roots in Wilson County. I was raised on my family's farm in the Tuckers Crossroads community. I experienced the value of hard work and was taught that you are to take care of your family and your neighbors. Taking this to heart, I started working as a deputy for the Wilson County Sheriff's Office. When the opportunity was given, I went to work as a school resource officer in Wilson County Schools. I am a product of Wilson County Schools, starting at Tuckers Crossroads Elementary and graduating from Lebanon High School. I wanted to serve and do what I could to ensure that the schools were a safe place for teachers, students and be a positive influence for the children. I sincerely ask for your vote and support. I will be someone that will do what I can for the future of Wilson County. I will be accessible, and my office will be an open door if elected."
