“Since I announced my decision to run for this office in March, voters have been telling me we need solid, experienced leadership to take on the challenges that are before us. As a businesswoman, involved citizen, and native of Floyd County, I feel I have the experience needed to offer bold, conservative solutions to help solve our county’s problems. Therefore, I am proud to announce today that I have qualified for the Floyd County Commission,” stated Wallace.
“As a businesswoman, I will offer positive, constructive solutions to the problems that face our county. As a wife, mother, and grandmother, I will work hard to make sure our conservative community values are protected and that Floyd County continues to be a great place to raise a family. And, as an involved citizen leader, I will be a voice of reason for the hardworking citizens of our county,” continued Wallace.
