Joe Grandy, of Jonesborough, announced his intention to seek a 6th District County Commission seat in the upcoming election.
Joe is the president and general manager of Ferguson Supply and has been with the company for 34 years.
I have worked with dozens of budgets in the business sector and in the not-for-profit sector alike, Grandy said. I am a fiscal conservative and strongly opposed to tax increases, and if elected, I pledge sound and responsible budget management.
Grandy is the president of the East Tennessee State University Buccaneer Athletic Scholarship Association Board of Directors. He is vice-chair of the Board of Directors of the Johnson City Power Board. He has served on the Board of Directors for the Salvation Army, and the Advisory Board for the Boy Scouts of America.
Most recently, Grandy was appointed to the Executive Board of the newly formed Economic Development Council. He also currently serves on the Bank of Tennessee Advisory Board.
Joe is a member of the National Rifle Association, the Director of the Greenwood Ruritan, and past President of the Rotary Club. He is currently serving as Associate Vice-President of the Johnson City Area Homebuilders Association. Joe is Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Munsey United Methodist Church and recently oversaw their Special Project Building Committee.
The 6th District is comprised of six precincts: Old Jonesborough Courthouse, Jonesborough Visitors Center, Marvins Chapel, Asbury, Fire Training Center, and Midway Outside. Joe Grandy will appear on the May 4th ballot as a Republican candidate.
I care deeply about Washington County and feel I have valuable leadership experience to offer, Joe said. If honored to be elected, I will be available and responsive to all calls. Joe can be reached at 791-1033.
In a district where some of the Commissioners have been in office for 24 years, I think it is time for fresh leadership and budget analysis. Everyone I talk to is concerned about the Washington County budget woes. I would appreciate the opportunity to put my skills to work for my community, said Grandy.
