Johnston County Commissioner Tony Braswell of Pine Level officially filed this morning (Wednesday) for re-election.  Braswell is seeking his fifth term in office.

“After much prayer, thought, and consolation with my family, I will seek re-election as Johnston County Commissioner, representing District 6,” Braswell said Wednesday.  “I believe my experience will be a great asset as the County faces the challenges and opportunities for the future.”

“Much work has been done this past year, however, more work is needed to address the issues the citizens of this County feel is important. We must have the courage to deal with managing our growth in a smart manner. Both our schools and roads are overcrowded and we can no longer ignore the things that need to be done for a bright future for this County. We have to look for ways to give the citizens tax relief, build schools, and expect accountability and efficiency in our education system. Our expectations for all levels of service, provided by the county and others, should always be at the very highest level, done with fiscal responsibility, and with the transparency taxpayers deserve and should receive.”

“I want to thank the voters for the overwhelming support I received in the past and I am prepared and ready as we move forward, not backward, to address these important issues.  I am asking for your prayers, support and vote again to serve as your Johnston County Commissioner,” Commissioner Braswell stated.

Mr. Braswell is the owner of Holt Lake Gas & Grill in Four Oaks.

In addition to his service as a County Commissioner, Mr. Braswell also serves on the Johnston County Planning Board, Johnston County Social Services Board, Community & Senior Services, JCATS, and NC Veterans Affairs Commission.
