|Tuesday, August 21, 2012|
On Aug. 13, Mt. Juliet resident Richard Moses officially filed for the vacant District 2 County Commissioner position. The seat will be contested in the November general election after the resignation of Commissioner Stephanie McDonald in July.“I have decided to run for the County Commissioner position in order to bring a fresh approach to the issues facing Wilson County today. I believe that I can use my common sense conservative values to continue to bring positive change to the entire county. To me, being a county commissioner is a great responsibility. You are one of the point people in the future of Wilson County. The rest of the community will look to your leadership in order to ensure a bright future. A county commissioner will be responsible for shaping the direction of Wilson County, from continued economic growth to providing a place for families to safely raise their children. As the District 2 commissioner, I believe I also should be accountable to the citizens of Wilson County, and should be available to address any problems or concerns that they may have. I believe in being highly accessible to my constituents and will strive to have an “open door” policy at all times.”
“I am looking forward to the campaign season, and I am thrilled to be able to meet with the people of my district. I am looking forward to hearing their concerns and answering their questions about the future of both Mt. Juliet and Wilson County. I also am excited about the opportunity to earn their trust and support after personally meeting with as many of them as possible.”
