 WILLIAMS IS SMALL BUSINESS OWNER, FORMER NC DISTRICT 7 GOP CHAIRMAN

LELAND, N.C. – Brunswick County small business owner and community leader Frank Williams, a conservative Republican, announced his candidacy today for the District 5 Brunswick County Board of Commissioners’ seat currently held by Bill Sue. Commissioner Sue recently told the Wilmington Star-News and other media outlets that he will not seek re-election in 2012. 

“Over the past two months a number of people throughout Brunswick County have encouraged me to run for County Commissioner next year, and after prayerful consideration I have decided to enter the race,” says Williams.  “Brunswick County has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, and that proves we have a good thing going.  It is critical that we exercise the common sense conservative leadership required to preserve the very reasons we choose to call Brunswick County home.

“As a county commissioner, my priorities will include keeping taxes low for our families and small businesses, creating a climate in which small businesses and entrepreneurs can grow, prosper and create jobs in Brunswick County, and ensuring that county government makes wise, efficient use of our citizens’ tax dollars,” Williams added.  “I look forward to the upcoming campaign and am excited about the opportunity to meet with Brunswick County’s residents, hear their concerns, answer their questions and earn their support.”

Frank Williams grew up in the northern Brunswick County community of Northwest and is a 1988 graduate of North Brunswick High School.  His first leadership role came as a teenager, when he served as a Patrol Leader in Leland’s Boy Scout Troop 265.  He attended North Carolina State University in Raleigh, where he earned a B.A. in Communication.   

Williams owns and operates Pioneer Strategies, a marketing and public relations firm he founded ten years ago.  He serves on the boards of directors of Communities in Schools of Brunswick County, the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce and the Leland Area Rotary Club.
