In reaching out to Houston county residents, I realized the misinformation being portrayed of me concerning preserving our beautiful county.
I do not support industrial frac-sand mining.
We do not have any frac sand mines or any applications for frac sand mines in Houston County. We do have a good mine zoning ordinance regulating the mines and quarries in the county. I do support our county highway department, townships and farms with their need for sand and gravel for road construction at local level costs for the good of our economy.
My focus as a commissioner has been serving the residents, the six cities, the 17 townships and the 17 county departments in fiscally sound ways that provide county services to the entire county.
