So, Davidson finally has its first candidate for the Board of Commissioners race this November.
aShortChronicle has been periodically asking the incumbents if any of them plan to run for reelection, and so far none have taken the opportunity to commit one way or the other. Today however, the race officially started with political newcomer Sammy Weaver announcing his candidacy on Facebook Tuesday morning.
Announcement begins below.
Hello, my fellow Davidson Citizens! Thank you for this warm welcome. I am very happy to be here with so many new friends! I am here today to announce my intention to seek one the nominations for Commissioner of the Town of Davidson. Over the next few months, I will challenge myself, go out into public, speak and introduce myself to as many Davidson residents as possible. I will listen and more importantly, pay attention. And for the ones who have been more vocal than others, I HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR!!! All I ask from you is to continue to be LOUD and maybe, maybe someone will hear. I know I will. I am here to serve the community and ONLY the community.
I wanted to be brief but here are things that I am and are NOT.
I am a Husband,
I am a Father,
I am a Veteran,
I am a Millennial,
I am a Davidson Resident.
I am NOT a politician,
I am NOT a developer,
I am NOT a lawyer,
I am NOT a builder,
I am NOT corruptible.
My Slogan - “Roots Not Roads”
This slogan is very important to me; it isn’t about anti-development or against growth. It is about establishing roots within our community, our home the Town of Davidson, and slow but important growth (similar to an Oak Tree) that benefits the community as a whole and not my self-interests (Roads, High Density Development, Compromising values, etc.).
Stay Tuned for more information “On the Issues” and how we will address them together.
Vote for Sam “Dream” Weaver (Just Like the Song)
“Roots Not Roads”
Official filing begins on July 7th at noon.
