If you live in Troup County, five people are elected as commissioners to make big decisions on your behalf. The County is divided into 4 districts, each with a commissioner. The fifth position is the Commission Chairman and can come from anywhere in the county.
Commissioners decide where new homes, businesses and commercial buildings will go by approving planning policies and zoning requests. Commissioners vote on county ordinances, responding to citizen requests for policies on noise, pollution, sidewalks, and traffic. They are responsible for helping decide how we grow as a community and just as important... how we pay for it.

While I am a conservative Republican, I also count myself as one of those that is often fed up with the politics of government. The political infighting at all levels serves mainly to paralyze action and progress.
I advocate a more common sense
approach which is to listen to all
opinions and investigate the solutions before
embracing a position.
Political ideology is not the most important aspect when it comes to the business of Troup County. I pledge to do what is right for everyone in this county.
