|Siever running for County Commissioner|
|Tuesday, July 15, 2014|
Becky Siever announces that she is seeking re-election as Wilson County Commissioner for District 1 for the upcoming election on August 7th. She has served District 1 for the past four years as the County Commissioner.
Mrs. Siever is a long time resident of the area. She is currently entering her third year as the principal of West Elementary. Prior to being the principal at West, she served as the Assistant Principal at West for four years. She is married to Philip Siever. They have two sons, Drew, who attends a local college and David, who attends Mt. Juliet High School. Philip is a local business owner in the transportation field as well as owning his own promotional company. He is also the soccer coach for the Eagle Express Soccer Club. Both Mr. and Mrs. Siever attend Tulip Grove Baptist Church.
“I have a heart for the community and its residents. I have worked nonstop the last four years serving the community both as a commissioner and as an educator. As the wife of a small business owner, I have seen firsthand how the economy affects families and businesses. Our county’s rapid growth and how we deal with it are the most critical issues that I see because it not only affects the economy but many other factors as well. The population growth impacts everything around us including roads, traffic, schools, police and fire protection. We are making good progress in addressing these issues but we still have a lot of work ahead of us.”
As the District 1 County Commissioner for the past four years, Mrs. Siever has been appointed to serve on many committees. She has been faithful to be a part of the committee process through her attendance and participation. She serves on the Finance, Emergency Management, Education and Agricultural Extension Committees. She is also the Chairman of the Health and Welfare Committee. She was recently elected as a Road Commissioner for Districts 1, 2, 4, 8, 10, 18 and 22. This was an honor for Mrs. Siever because not only was she elected by her peers to serve as a Road Commissioner, but she was also the first female Road Commissioner in Wilson County.
Mrs. Siever says, “I am proud to be a part of the accomplishments that the Commission has achieved in the last four years. These include building new high schools, new additions for West Wilson Middle School as well as West Elementary School. Rutland Elementary School gained a new building as part of their construction process. We have also recently voted to build a much needed addition to the very overcrowded Carroll Oakland School. We added SRO officers in every school in the county after the Sandy Hook tragedy. The Commission has made great strides in helping bridge the gaps in our fire protection by building new fire halls and working with the cities to increase fire protection in all areas of the county.”
As a proud servant leader in District 1, Becky Siever wants to continue to represent and serve the people in her district. She is a voice for her district, a listening ear for concerns, and a proud representative on the county level for District 1. She asks for your vote again on August 7th so she can continue her work and her representation.
