My name is Jennifer Graham and I am running for the Gaston County Board of Commissioners Riverbend Township seat.
I spent 31 years working for the Gaston County Department of Social Services, retiring as a Child Day Care Social Worker in 2016. I have extensive knowledge of the workings of county government and a unique understanding of the needs and concerns of our community.
My platform for representing you, the citizens of Gaston County, includes advocating for the best services to meet the future needs of our growing community. I believe politics should not get in the way of responsible, effective, and inclusive governing. If I am elected as your representative to the Board of Commissioners you can count on me to work side-by-side with community organizations and elected officials of all party affiliations to make thoughtful and fiscally responsible decisions which make sense for the future growth, health, safety and well-being of our community.
I have one agenda - using my life and work experiences to help shape the future of Gaston County into a community of opportunity and prosperity, where we welcome and value everyone. I look forward to hearing from you, the citizens, on how I can best serve our community should I be honored with the privilege of your vote on November 6, 2018.
