•Personal message: The last four years, I have been on the city council have been a tremendous experience. Our city dealt with an economic downturn but was still asked to expand city services and provide opportunities for new business. Serving on the council is a rewarding experience and a privilege. I respectfully seek re-election to the council where I would like to continue a direction of controlling growth of our city, maintain a positive atmosphere for our youth, and provide support to our aging population. Thank you for your vote.

•Personal message: I am running for City Council because I live here and care what happens to Clanton. I am available to work with our citizens daily to help address their concerns. I would like to help bring more businesses to Clanton, which will create more job opportunities and/or more shopping opportunities here at home. I would like to help with getting better roads and safer bridges in town. I also would like to get sewer services available to those who want it. Lastly, I want to help Clanton continue to be a “nice place to visit but a better place to live.”

•Age: 72

•Family: Betty P. Cook, spouse; Melinda C. McCullough (David), daughter; two grandsons, Pate and Parker.

I look forward to continuing fair representation during the next four years.

    The economic downturn slowed our progress of getting more restaurants and shopping but I’m proud that we did not have to layoff any employee. The City is financially sound and I hope that when the elections are over, we can get back to work aggressively pursuing new businesses. Let’s keep the money in Chilton County!
