I am Lewis Davis and I am seeking the office of County Commissioner of Troup County representing District 3. I am a local businessman and third-generation native of Troup County. I live in the same community that my grandfather did in the early 1900s. I am proud to call Troup County home and want to see it continue to thrive and to prosper. I have the ability to help make that happen. I can do the job of commissioner and do it well.
While I am conservative and a Republican, I also count myself as one who is fed up with the politics of government. The political infighting we see at all levels serves mainly to paralyze action, and impede progress. 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. I advocate common sense, using solid Christian principles and a more open and inclusive approach. My parents taught me to be respectful, my faith teaches me to always look for the good in people and my business taught me to always be a little skeptical. Politics has no part in my decision making process.
I am in this election because I have a passion to see this community do well. My goal in serving as County Commissioner is to preserve our heritage, protect that which is working well, and be willing to make intelligent improvements to keep our community a strong, vibrant place to live and work. I will work in cooperation with the other commissioners and the cities of West Point, Hogansville and LaGrange on our long-term strategy to ensure the positive momentum of the past continues. We also must never lose sight of two of our primary missions – to protect our heritage and protect the most vulnerable among us, whether that is our seniors, our children or our unemployed. That is, after all, a big part of what this is all about - trying to improve our county for the next generation. I owe it to my son, as well as all of our county’s children, to do my part to help make Troup County the best it can be.
I will not make any outlandish pledges. I promise only to work hard every day for the residents of this great county and to make you proud of the decision you will make in the days to come. I ask for your support and vote to help us accomplish this vision.
