Parker seeks D-1 Limestone commission seat

ATHENS — At age 30, Seth Parker is the youngest of the men vying for the District 1 seat on the Limestone County Commission, though there are officially four more days for would-be candidates to qualify for the June 3 primary election.

Parker is a bit of an early bloomer. The 2001 graduate of Elkmont High School has been a business owner since age 17, when he bought and sold items on eBay. By age 19, he had earned a real estate license. Today, he manages his real estate office, Level 10 Realty; he has 15 years of experience in the technology industry; he and his wife, Natosha, founded Parkers Studios, an architectural photography company; and he also designs Internet web pages.

The web page he created for his candidacy is slick. It features a series of panels that outline Parker’s goals as a candidate. 

One shows a close up of a pothole on Slate Road in Elkmont with the caption: “Look familiar…I’ll fix that.” It also includes a link to his road-repair plan.

Another panel shows Parker standing in front of an American flag with the caption: “Are you tired of terrible roads, wasteful spending and poor decisions?” It includes a link to his plan for Limestone.

A third panel shows Parker in from of the Limestone County Courthouse with the caption: “I will fight to get the funding our district and county deserve.” It includes a link to his funding plan.

Among his reasons for running …

“I feel I have a unique set of skills to offer,” Parker said Friday, after officially qualifying with the Limestone County Republican Party and filing his paperwork in the Probate Judge’s Office. He must defeat fellow Republicans James Shannon, Daryl Sammet and Tom Combs in the June 3 primary and then win the Nov. 4 general election.  So far, there are no Democratic challengers for the District 1 seat.
