I have been a resident of Person County most of my life. I graduated from Western Carolina University in 1978. My wife, Judy and I have been married for 38 years, and we have lived in Person County most of our married life. We have three children, and two grandchildren. I have operated my own business for over 20 years in Person County. It has been a pleasure to serve Person County for all of these years, and I plan to continue to serve Person County for many more years. I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all life has done for me and my family.
