Paid Political Advertising FOR COUNTY COMMISSION I, Tony Williams, am grateful to my supporters in the primary for showing their trust and confidence in my ability. As a result, I am now continuing to seek an opportunity to serve all of Summers County. I am a man with a plan, and I believe my plan will bring a better future for Hinton and Summers County, It is a known fact and promise that this area will attract thousands of new tourists in the near and future years as a result of the location of Boy Scouts of America in our area. We can accept this as a challenge and become an important part of the financial and environmental benefits of this huge opportunity or we can pass this over to our neighboring cities and counties. If elected, I will remember all your ideas and concerns over the years and work as hard as I can to make sure our city and county reaps the benefits that are approaching us. First, we must realize the importance of tourism. Our base for jobs has eroded in recent years and tourism is a logical source to replace our employment opportunity. Our success in attracting people to our area depends on our commitment to providing a positive experience and impression to visitors. We can no longer just sit back and watch them drive through. We must clean up our act and Look like a first class place to visit. Second, we must realizethe progress we have made and continue to improve it. Thevisitor center, New River Parkway, viewing deck at Brooks Falls, Boardwalk at Sandstone Falls, and other tourist's attractions are just a few possibilities and projects that will impress visitors. Many of the houses and buildings in Hinton have been improved or removed; and there is a lot to do in that area of just putting a clean face on things. Often, it's just as simple as enforcing regulations or making new ones that can make a big difference here. You are, by far, the most important element in the success of any plan of improvement. Third, we must volunteer to serve on various projects that can improve our area. I would like to see more communication between the Park Service and the people here to establish new projects and ways we can help each other. Fourth, we must support all agencies trying to help our region. Most important, I believe education is the answer to a lot of our problems. People need help to learn new skills, break patterns of addiction, and dependency on government. The schools need our support financially, of course, but more in areas of creating respect for the individual and their role in a community. I am proud to be a citizen, of Summers County and I want to make it a better place for all. Pol. ad paid by Tony Williams / L/ ~ Digital Cinema & Performing This Weekend at The I itz!
