Cunningham to run for Gibson County mayor
The following is a paid political announcement
“After prayerful consideration, the support of my family, and the encouragement of respected friends, I am announcing my candidacy for Gibson County mayor,” said Nelson Cunningham.
“Gibson County has been my home for 48 years. I graduated from Milan High School and the University of Tennessee Knoxville where I studied Horticulture and Turf Management. Twenty years ago I founded Green Valley Farms Nursery and Sod in the Humboldt area. My wife, Amy, and I have four children in the Gibson County Special School District. We are members of Milan Cumberland Presbyterian Church where I serve as a deacon and elder.
“Serving as District 1 county commissioner since 2010 and serving on the budget and highway committees, among others, has given me an in-depth understanding of county government, our strengths and our opportunities for improvement.
“I humbly ask for your consideration at the May 3 Republican primary as well as the general election August 4.
“Our county has great potential. Together we can move Gibson County forward. I need your support to be your county mayor and lead the way.“
Hello Nelson, I worked with your mother-in-law Judy Smith years ago. So glad to hear you are running for Mayor. We need fresh eyes and tons of changes in Gibson County. Wish you the best. You got my vote.
