I announced several months ago my intention to seek the office of Loudon County Mayor. Mr. Arp's announcement does not alter my approach; it has always been my intent to run on my political record and accomplishments, not those of any other candidate.
I would like to wish Mr. Arp well in his retirement.
I know the "Political Establishment" that has long controlled Loudon County government will be working overtime to find a replacement candidate to fill Mr. Arp's shoes.
My committment to the people of Loudon County remains the same regardless of who the new heir apparent is.
I continue to respectfully request your vote and support in the upcoming election.
Together, We Can Make A Difference.
