Ward 1

I was born and raised in Commerce, Georgia. I am a proud Commerce Tiger graduating with the Class of 78. While attending Gainesville Junior College in 1980, I responded to a recruiting campaign from The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) seeking employees to relocate to the Washington,D.C. area. I spent 5 years with the FBI receiving training and clearances that made me attractive to various other 3 letter agencies and defense and national security type of organizations in and around the Washington, D.C. area whom I worked for over 10 years. I also spent 10 years in corporate management and sales in the Washington,D.C. area. While living there, I attended Northern Virginia Community College and The University of Maryland, College Park, University College majoring in Psychology. After the September 11, 2001 bombing of The Pentagon and The World Trade Center, I knew that I wanted to come back home. We returned to Commerce in 2003. I met my wife Wanda in Maryland, where we married in Sept. of 1999. Wanda is a military brat, who was born in Panama while her family was stationed there with the US Army. Fortunately for me, her family’s last duty station was Fort Benning, Ga. She is a Corporal with the Clarke County Sheriff Department. We have 2 spoiled dogs and 1 spoiled cat. I am retired and enjoy traveling, gardening and other outdoor activities.
