Terrell Potter for Franklin County Sheriff

Five candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff in Franklin County. Among them is Terrell Potter, a veteran officer with Franklin police departments and the County District Attorney's office.

Anyone who knows Mr. Potter will undoubtedly be voting for him, but if there should be any Franklin County citizens who have yet to meet Terrell, we invite you to check out his website. Franklin County has been plagued with malfeasance and corruption in the past. With Terrell Potter as sheriff, you can be assured of honest law enforcement in an efficient manner. We take great pleasure in endorsing Terrell Potter for Franklin County Sheriff.


Parker Griffith in Florence on May 7th

The Shoals Republican Club will host Congressman Parker Griffith on Friday, May 7th from 4:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. at the offices of Weichert Realtors located on the 5th floor, 412 South Court Street in downtown Florence. Griffith is running for re-election to Congress in the Republican Primary, June 1st. Congressman Griffith will speak about current issues before Congress as part of the meet and greet in Florence. The event is free and open to the public.

As a member of Congress representing North Alabama, Griffith continues to fight for us by working to lower taxes, investing in education, creating and keeping valuable jobs and representing our values in Washington. He has served our community as a doctor and a small businessman creating jobs. As the first Board Certified Radiation Oncologist in North Alabama, he has played a leading role in the early diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer. This experience continues to aid him in addressing and fighting for the health care needs of our community and opposing national health care reform efforts that are bad for patients and bad for our nation.

Before attending medical school, he taught seventh grade math, and he continues to lecture in our schools on science and health issues. In addition, Congressman Griffith is involved in local schools through the Griffith Family Foundation, which awards the Reading Readiness Grant to public elementary school libraries for the purchase of books and tools to enhance the reading readiness of their students. Parker and his wife, Virginia, have five children and eleven grandchildren.
