Jackson kicks off campaign for Commission

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. — Incumbent DeKalb County Commissioner DeWitt Jackson is announcing his re-election bid to the DeKalb County Commission.

Mr. Jackson was first elected in 2002 and has served since that time. He and his wife of 43 years, Rhonda, are residents of Sylvania, where their children and grandchildren also reside.

“It has been an honor to serve the people of our county and my district for the last 16 years,” said Jackson. “Through the recessions, devastating tornadoes, funding questions, and rising costs (just to name a few), this Commission has kept our county financially sound.”

“We never have the funds that we need to do everything we need. This is the plight of every county in the state, both large and small, but we do work hard with our local, state, and federal officials on a constant basis to provide the essential services that are our responsibility,” he continued.

“We work in harmony with all our officials and that working relationship with our municipalities, state, and federal agencies has been, and continues to be, foundational to services we are mandated to provide and perform. Disharmony makes any kind of governmental process dysfunctional. The bottom line is we strive to work together in every way and I pledge to continue in that avenue. I have tried to make myself available to you and will continue to do so. I hope that my service has proved that I do care about you and the problems we all face.”

“I humbly ask again for your consideration and vote in the upcoming general election on November 6 and thank you again for the great opportunity you have given me to serve in this capacity,” he concluded.
