Commissioner Giles running for District 3
Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Art Giles has announced his candidacy for election as the Mt. Juliet City Commissioner for District 3. Mr. Giles, a long-time resident of Mount Juliet, currently serves as the District 3 Commissioner, and has a passion for serving his community. Commissioner Giles offers himself as “The Conservative Choice” in this election, and has a voting record to support that claim. 

Commissioner Giles has voted to increase public safety and fire protection throughout Mt. Juliet. He has supported quality economic growth for many years, both as the District 3 Commissioner and as a member of the Mt. Juliet Regional Planning Commission for the past eight years.

Giles has worked diligently to successfully implement road improvement projects and better meet our transportation needs. He has helped improve our parks, recreational opportunities, and begin the preservation of greenways. He supports city beautification efforts so that all Mt. Juliet residents can be proud of their city today, and for many years to come.

Most importantly, says Commissioner Giles, is his “strong support of smaller, more effective and efficient government in Mt. Juliet.”  Giles continued that, “Mt. Juliet has a strong heritage of adopting responsible budgets, bringing in construction projects on time and under budget, and ending each year with a larger surplus than budgeted for. I will work as hard as possible to carry that history through the next four years.”

Giles is a local business owner, a member of the Rotary Club, and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association. As a hand-gun carrying permit advocate, he will always protect our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. 

As a member of the local Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship Incorporated, Giles has served on the advisory board for many years and is the current music director of the Bible-based group, which welcomes any member of the community to its meetings. He has also been a former sponsor of Mt. Juliet Little League baseball, which he fully supports.

Giles has strong family values, as do the residents of District 3. Every member of his family is a Christian and attends Life Assembly Church in Mount Juliet. He and his wife, Jill, principal of W.A. Wright Elementary School, have been happily married for ¬¬28 years. They have two sons, Blake and Joshua. Both sons graduated from Mt. Juliet High School and reside in Mt. Juliet. Blake is a graduate of The University of Tennessee Knoxville. Joshua currently attends Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin, TN. 

Giles, with a business administration degree from Belmont University, feels that his education in addition to his city government experience qualifies him to continue moving the city forward. Commissioner Giles has proudly supported Mt. Juliet for many years, and offers his continued service to the people for the upcoming term. “It is an honor to serve the people of District 3, and I ask for the opportunity to continue that service for another term. I humbly ask for your vote,” Giles stated.
