Terry Caywood has announced his candidacy for a second term as Bradley County 1st District commissioner serving Hopewell, Prospect and the McDonald communities.

“It has been a honor to represent the voters who elected me over three years ago,” he said.

“I have tried to serve by respecting the wishes of the majority. While serving as your commissioner I voted “NOT” to increase property taxes and to make the current tax dollar stretch as far as possible. This involved choosing the most economical and best fire protection, supporting industrial and long- range development, continued animal control and affordable educational funding,” Caywood said.

“Growing up in Bradley County and serving 38 years helping educate Bradley County students has instilled in me a sincere desire to continue to work for my community. I have demonstrated this by serving as chairman of the county juvenile committee, and currently on the road committee, the law enforcement committee, the ethics committee, the insurance committee, vice president of the corridor 60 project, and serving as board member on the Vocational Rehab board.

“I am currently employed at Life Bridges, Inc. where I have worked for the past 10 years serving adults with disabilities. God has shown me the best way to be blessed is by helping others,” he noted.

Caywood is married to Sue Beaty Caywood and they have four children, Robin, Ginger, Carrie, and Criss, all graduates of Bradley Central High School.

Caywood is a deacon and Sunday school teacher at Gum Springs Baptist Church where he has been a member for 33 years.

“I was humbled when voters elected me almost four years ago and I count it a privilege to have served with my fellow county commissioners. They have welcomed me and share an invaluable wealth of knowledge.

“I want to personally thank Mayor Gary Davis for his support and guidance during my first 4 years of service. If the voters choose to re-elect me for another 4 years of service, I will do my very best to listen and vote for sound responsible policies. With God’s help I will I will continue to live by Christian principals and make decisions that reflect my Christian values. I want to personally say ‘thank you’ for your trust and vote in the republican primary come May 6, 2014,” he said.
