I believe the future of Chatham County is bright and I want to do everything I can to ensure that future is accessible to ALL of its citizens regardless of racial, cultural or economic background. My experiences have afforded me the opportunity to work with many people in a variety of arenas. I believe I can use my background to engage a diverse body of people for the progress of our county. The Democratic party espouses the ideals of equity, social justice and individual's personal rights. Those ideals amongst others are ideals that I hold dear in my heart and in my leadership style.
If elected, what would be your top priorities? Why? How would you approach finding a solution?
I think we can do that by creating a polling database that can only be accessed by residents of districts based on voter registration and DDS data for addresses. Allow citizens the opportunity to voice what they feel is necessary for the community rather than dictating it to them.
Why Vote for Me:
Having once been a recipient of government aid to now being a middle class homeowner and business owner, I have actually experienced what it takes to go from nothing to something. I understand how people who align with my school of thought think and I also understand how those from opposing schools of thought think. I am unafraid of conflict or strife and am willing to endure it for the betterment of our community. As a coach/mentor and insurance agent I work with children and business owners and adults on a daily basis so I have the ability to see things from a variety of lenses. My military experience has afforded me the opportunity to engage and lead a diverse block people. Elect me, Aaron “Adot” Whitely as your next County Commissioner, for District 6 because I am ready and trained to fight for what's right!
