Crye to seek re-election as
2nd Disrict commissioner

“I want to take this opportunity to announce my bid for re-election as Bradley County Commissioner from 2nd District, Seat B,” noted Tom Crye.
“I plan to run again on the same platform I endorsed during my first campaign: to patronage education and stimulate jobs. I feel my accomplishments during my present term are significant of both of these essential areas,” he said.

As an advocate and promoter of education, he noted he 

• “Facilitated the funding of $17.2 million for Lake Forest Middle School, which is now under construction;

• “The granting of $16 million to Bradley County Schools for a much-needed energy program which will dramatically increase the lifespan of these aging facilities; and

•”The purchase of the American Uniform Building to house the PIE Innovation Center. This job-readiness program will prepare students through career and technical education.

“As a campaigner and activities for the creation of jobs, I strongly supported:

• “The new industrial park near Exit 20 which includes a $3 million funding of the county’s portion of the infrastructure; and

•”The development of local industries through payments-in-lieu of taxes, or PILOT, on new expansion. I am proud to say that several hundred jobs were created as a result.

“Other accomplishments include the support for a $3 million work-release building. This facility allows designated inmates to work during the day and fulfill their incarceration when not gainfully employed,” he said.

“Please note that all of my accomplishments transpired without an increase in property taxes. I enjoy serving as your 2nd District commissioner and request your continued support,” Crye said.
