Hear From a Supporter

“I support Doug Smith as a candidate for the Madison County Commissioner seat vacated by John Weber. Doug is a community servant. He has both the time and the talent to be able to commit to this important elected position. Doug has a great working knowledge of the community’s history and that lends itself to making informed decisions about its future.

Doug has worked tirelessly for his Church, his neighborhood, his family, and the Boy Scouts of America. I believe would do the same for Madison County. I have observed him as a neighbor and find his energy and passion for doing things right, to be a foundational character trait in his life.

Please join me in voting for Doug Smith for Madison County Commissioner.”
