Occupation: Current President of the Forrest County Board of Supervisors. Also, a licensed  contractor through the State of Mississippi and the City of Hattiesburg for the  past 15 years.
Political Experience: Interned through USM in 1993 with the Forrest County Sheriff’s Office  (Billy McGee) and stayed on for 3 years. Subsequently worked two terms for the Forrest County District Attorney’s Office for Lindsay Carter. Currently  completing his 1st term as District 1 Supervisor for Forrest County.

I believe that the top issues for the 2012-15 term will be having the ability to provide basic county services (ie: public safety, quality roads & bridges, and maintaining county facilities and services) at the lowest expense possible to the Forrest County Tax Payer without having to increase their tax payments. I am also committed to continue efforts of reducing expenses and thus property taxes wherever possible especially during these tough economic times.

Accomplishments: My greatest accomplishments include being a saved Christian, being with my wife for more than 23 years, and my three children Candice, Priscilla and David Marcus. Other accomplishments include graduating college, being elected to serve as an advocate for the citizens of Forrest County, and my past mission work through Dixie Baptist Church.

I am also proud of the fact that the board has reduced the millage rates of every budget since I have been elected. Most notably, the largest millage reduction in Forrest County history took place during the 2010 reassessment (over a 5 mill Reduction).
