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.“
