“I have concluded my first term with dedicated attendance and also one that consistently represents my Cleveland city residents to the County Commission,” he said.
“Now my four years have been recorded. As you review my record, you will find that I have championed the cause of cooperation between Bradley County and Cleveland City.
“I have assessed every situation from a perspective of what is best for all of Bradley County and how can I make it happen?
“I have involved myself in a potential merger of fire protection services, animal control and rescue solutions, supporting new industry (Wacker) as well as maintaining long standing industries (Whirlpool and M&M Mars), developing a new industrial park, looking at Common Core and voting to give you, the public, the opportunity to vote on the wheel tax for educational construction,” he said.
“I have admiration and appreciation for the men and women with whom I share these responsibilities as a Bradley County Commission member,” Winters said.
“We have established a culture of mutual respect and focus upon what is the best decision for our respective constituents. The five members who became commissioners with me four years ago have each, in their own way, made me proud to be a commissioner. The most senior members have immediately welcomed me as a colleague,” he said.
“I am asking for the privilege to serve and sit in your 7th District Commission seat for the next four years. It is your seat and I remember that each day that I sit there. Your vote for me in the May Primary and later in the General Election will allow me to continue my journey of representation. I promise not to let you down… by God’s grace and your good will and support,” Winters said.
“In closing, my immediate and extended family has been my rock of support. Second only to my faith in Christ, my wife, Karen, and our children, Robbie and Jeni, are the reason I am confident to serve. They, and their spouses, along with my six grandchildren, give me great joy for this journey,” Winters said.
