Vote for Change.... Change your Vote

As an Independent candidate I can not simply pay a filing fee to get on the November 8, 2016 ballot. I needed 172 verified petitions from Macon County registered voters who understand competition in sport and politics strengthens all players and therefore be willing to place me on the ballot. Get this - 233 petitions were certified, nearly 40% more than I needed, from the near 300 submitted. As soon as the Probate Judge notifies me I will be an official candidate for Chairman, Macon County Commission on the November 2016 ballot.

It is still not too late to register to vote, of which I hope you will vote for Frank Dillman. My biggest opponent will not be the sitting chairman but straight party voting. Therefore, for your vote to count you must mark the ballot immediately next to Frank Dillman.

Invite me to speak with your community group or association by email or calling 334-740-4217.

Get to know me and know I will serve you to the best of my capabilities; I will walk your walk. Voting for me rather than straight ticket voting will set the tone, as you know, for much needed change in our Macon County government.

For those of you who are tired of the one-party Macon County and being denied a viable and open ballot, know competition strengthens both the winner and loser on any playing field or court. Politics is no different. Open debate of candidates before the public will strength all candidates, in particular sending a stronger and wiser person to office to represent you. After the primary, organize a public forum for all county wide candidates on the Nov. 2016 ballot to discuss the county business and issues important to you.
