I, John Vester, am announcing my candidacy for Greene County Commission District 4.
I am running because I want to help improve the infrastructure for Greene County District 4.
I was born one of fifteen children and raised on a farm in the Miconnico Creek/Tishabee area of Forkland, AL. I met and married my wife Yvonne in Hartford, Connecticut. We have four children, John Jr., Akeba, Rashad and Jamilah.
I am a U.S Airforce Veteran.
Education: Air University, Areospace Engineering Technology; University of Hartford Health Sciences: University of Alabama,Administrative Sciences, Internship, Capstone Medical Center.
Experience: United Airlines, Pratt and Whitney, Airport and Willgoss Laboratories, Assistant Test Engineer, major projects, Testing rotor vanes for jumbo jets and testing of moon rocket exhaust baffle to increase thrust to lift payload out of earth atmosphere.
Connecticut State Health Department, Microbiologist, Viral and Communicable Disease.
I left Connecticut to become part of the movement in Greene County; to help a county that was said to be one of the poorest in the nation.
After moving to Greene County, I worked for the Probate Judge, County Commission and was CEO to Greene County Community Services where I created and developed several major projects to improve the infrastructure, para-mutual wagering and Racetrack to provide funds to county agencies, towns, and communities. This project with initial dog racing and now Bingo has kept all Greene County agencies solvent until this day. (Citizen Federal Bank, Eutaw First Industrial Development Board in Greene County, 300 acre Industrial Park, Park and Recreation System, First Personnel Policy and procedures, employee association, and standardized pay scales for all departments.)
If elected, I will work hard to represent my district and Greene County to help improve the infrastructure, which includes roads, bridges, housing, sewer, recreation, protection of Ancestral graveyards, safety and security of our communities and improved tax based.
As you can see, I have already contributed significantly to the infrastructure, stability and growth of our county. I hope I am allowed to continue this progress. I want to thank you, and I need your vote and support in the upcoming June 5 election.
