As I look back over the past 24 years, I am amazed at the many accomplishments of J.D. Hess as Calhoun County commissioner for District 4.

He has worked in every community of his district to make the lives better for people living there. J.D. has provided opportunities for all ages to benefit from his leadership. There have been community centers in several areas, youth ball fields, parks for recreation and road and bridge projects.

J.D. was instrumental in the opening of a satellite office for tags, taxes and licenses in Alexandria, which benefits the northern end of the county. The Calhoun County Agriculture Center was also an idea of his brought to fruition, which also brings in tourism to our county. I have known J.D. all his life. You see, I proudly say J.D. is my brother. I ask you to join me in voting for J.D. Hess on Tuesday.
