Election 2012: Q&A with District 4 County Commission incumbent Bill Daws


NC: What do you feel is the greatest need in Limestone County that has not been previously discussed by the County Commission? 

Daws: I believe that the County Commission is, has discussed and planned for the greater needs of Limestone County. I would like to see more community involvement in the governing direction of the county and would encourage all citizens to make their concerns known.

NC: Why should the voters of District 4 elect you as their county commissioner over your opponent? 

Daws: I have more than 10 years of quality service to my district. This has allowed me to cultivate working relationships with state and federal officials and agencies. As a result of this, I have been able to secure and maintain the funding and resources to increase the quality of life and safety of the citizens of my district.

Past and ongoing projects include: two completed community storm shelters and one applied for; repaired and maintained the existing shelter at West Limestone High School; the turn lane at Owens Elementary School; secured $5,648,102.95 in road resurfacing; new guardrails; bridge repairs; built a new senior center in the Owens community and secured the funds to install a walking trail there; and upgraded the senior center at Good Springs.

In a countywide effort to attract new industry and jobs, I had a direct role in bringing these new opportunities to the citizens of District 4 and Limestone County. I have now and always will be personally available to hear and address the concerns of the people of my district.
