"I'm going to be a good steward of the money you provide for county government. I'm going to watch over that extremely close. I'm also in favor of strong law enforcement," states Jim Jackson, Candidate for Newton County Commissioner.
"I believe that smaller organizations are better and more efficient. That would be my approach to county government," states Carl Brand, Candidate for Newton County Commissioner.
Jackson plans to promote Newton County to develop tourism and economic development. Brand would like to reduce the power of planning and zoning councils in the affairs of county residents. Tomorrow we will have a response from the other 2 candidates, Doc McCready and Rick McCully.
