About this series: As part of our ongoing election coverage, we invited each candidate to submit up to three letters of support. Here is a letter in support of Christine Bloodworth who is running for Tucker City Council, District 1, Post 2
Fall is upon us and the season is beginning to change. This is a wonderful time of year to reflect and appreciate the seasons changing to prepare for something new. Nov. 5th is right around the corner and I encourage you all to exercise your right to vote. Several areas need to be addressed in Tucker and if you’re currently not pleased with your council members, now is a good time to ignite change. Tucker can no longer stay a “Sleepy little town” and it’s important to consider each candidate carefully. If you desire for them to represent you and the community in which you live, keep them in office. If not, I encourage you to vote for change.
I have known Christine Bloodworth (Christy) for over 15 years and I strongly agree that her heart and her actions are “Committed to the Community.” Ms. Bloodworth facilitates several community activities per year in addition to her helping those with specific needs in the community. She’s a great listener, with a genuine concern for people. Ms. Bloodworth’s ties within the community are strong and her desire is to see the Tucker Community succeed in every area.
If you have any questions or concerns, please send them to email@example.com
