Before the Primaries in 2016 for state and local offices, we ran a series of interviews of several of the candidates running. We called it the 2016 Candidate Spotlight Series. Several of those candidates we interviewed won election and we decided to check back in with those candidates as well as with some of our other elected officials in a series we’re calling the 2017 Public Servant Spotlight Series. We’re asking the newly elected officials how the reality of the office they won compares to their expectations, what legislation or actions they are proud of accomplishing in their first few months in office, what they plan to attempt to attempt to accomplish going forward. Our first Spotlight focuses on the freshman state senator for District 6, Sen. William Timmons. The Senator talks about the challenges of the state senate, how even in defeat, he sees progress and some of the legislation he plan to introduce. We also spent some time on the biggest piece of legislation coming out of this session; the Roads Bill. If you would like to contact Sen. Timmons, here is his contact info: Email: email@example.com Legislature email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 864-616-8821 Feel free to let the Senator know of your concerns and ideas.
