Nicholson challenges Goodger for District 1 seat on Board of Commissioners

News

WHITE COUNTY, Ga. – Jerry Nicholson is a candidate for the White County Board of Commissioners in District 1. Fetch Your News attempted to interview Nicholson but he said he was too busy with his campaign and offered this written statement instead:

“First and foremost, I’m running for District 1 Board of Commissioners to serve the citizens of White County and my district as a Republican. I’ve lived in White County for over 25 years and I have been a native of Hall County and Gainesville my entire life. I have four grown sons which is my greatest accomplishment and they all have children giving me eight grandchildren.

“I have been in business myself my entire life and a business owner in Gainesville and White County. I currently own Lanier Egg Sales and real estate holdings in White County and Hall County. Being in the agriculture and real estate business I have a very diverse background and currently active in both.

“I am a Conservative Christian businessman, past member of White Counties Republican Executive Board and delegate at the state and district GOP convention.

“I’ve served on at least 17 mission trips on native American reservations for a group called adventures in missions in North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana and I attend Free Chapel in Gainesville, Georgia.”

A review of Nicholson’s Facebook page shows that his goals are to make White County the most pro- business community in north Georgia, to bring new thinking to the Board of Commissioners to finish long overdue projects and to “balance tourism, agriculture and small business.”
