I, James Gaines, Jr., am announcing my candidacy for Greene County Commissioner, District 1. I am a member of the First Baptist Church Union and I am currently serving as the Mayor of the Town of Union. I feel that I have made a difference in the town and want to broaden my horizons by making a positive impact on our county as well as working to unify our county. Through prayer and great consideration I have given much thought in seeking this office. Here in our county, we have led our communities in many ways and I believe that by working together in unity we can continue to move our county forward. Now is not the time for thinking small. Now is not the time for the same old established politics and ideas. Now is the time for us to come together to become unified and move this great county to higher heights.
My campaign is not based on individuals but instead on what is best for the county and I hope all of my constituents feel the same way. With your support, I believe we can become unified. My pledge is “Unity” Starts With Us. Thanking all of you in advance for your vote and support in the upcoming June 5th Election.
