Local business woman Sandy C. Brown will be a candidate for the Republican nomination for Assessor of Property.
Brown made her announcement Saturday morning during the DeKalb County Republican Party Mass meeting, held at the courthouse. "It's been four years, I think folks know me a little bit better now. I'm a member of Webb's Methodist Church. I have my own business. I've been to the classes for Assessor. I still have the contacts out there but I will need your support folks. It's not going to be the same race as last time. Frankly, I don't have the wherewithal to throw that kind of cash into it and I need your input. Get in touch with me and let me know what you'd like to see me do and what you want me to do."
Brown, who ran unsuccessfully for Assessor of Property in August 2004, is the owner and operator of Tennessee Barn Builders/SCB Enterprises on Highway 70 West.
Meanwhile, incumbent Second District Constable Reed Edge announced his intention to seek re-election. "I'm married to Sonya Edge and we've got four little girls. It's been my privilege to serve you for the last eight years as constable and I'd like to keep on representing you. With the help of the Republican Party and everybody else in DeKalb County, I can do that. I'd like to thank Sheriff Patrick Ray for letting the constables have a more active part in helping with the welfare of this county. I sure would appreciate all the help you can give me."
