What a fantastic announcement ceremony! I just want to take a second to thank God, my family, friends, supporters, and the elected officials of this great city who came out and supported the beginning of an incredible journey. 

Thank you City Councilors Bruce Huff, Gary Allen, Glenn Davis, and Skip Henderson. 

Thank you Tax Commissioner Lula Huff.

Thank you Marshal Greg Countryman.

Thank you Clerk of Municipal Court Vivian Creighton Bishop.

Thank you Sheriff John Darr.

Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedule to attend. Without you, this would not be possible. Have a blessed day!
