Jason Proctor, Incumbent

My name is Jason Proctor. I am running for Re-Election of District 3 County Commissioner.

I have lived in the county for 35 years. I am married and graduated from Pike County High in 1997. I co-own a family business that has been in the county since it was established in 1994.

I'm currently serving my first term. During my short time in office, I led the action for the Second Amendment Sanctuary status. Most weekends I ride the roads in my district and report back to the County Manager any issues I find so he can pass along to Public Works and they can be addressed. I have been working closely with both to try and find a solution for our road conditions. These are just two examples of the many issues I have been working on.

Before I was elected I served on the Planning Commission and have kept in close contact with the director and other members of this board. Therefore I am current on the issues we face in this County.

I live here, work here, shop here, and contribute to many organizations in the community. I am asking for your vote so I may continue the work that I have started. With your help we will Keep Pike Great.

Please contact me at jproctor@pikecoga.com for more info or with any concerns.

Homer Gibbins, Jr.

I am the father of seven children. I want them to grow up in a community they can believe in. As a husband to Amy Gibbins for 18 years I want to protect her for she has taught me to strive for our community by doing what’s best for a neighbors. I have worked with youth groups at Oak Hill Baptist Church since 1996 and a lot of those kids live in Pike County so I want to help build a future for them.

I’m not a politician and I don’t claim to be but my parents taught me to be the change that I want to see in the world. Our community has reached out to me about our roads and I want to follow through and try to bring relief, some new ideas to give our community confidence in our leadership that seems to be lacking.

I will work to bring jobs in our community that provide for the family. I believe in the family, it should be our greatest investment.

I love the feel of Pike County, we are a rural area and I want to bring the community together. We don’t have to see eye to eye on every issue but we can agree on common ground issues and build from there.

I want to stand on the constitution that our forefathers put in place that has been stepped on in other parts of our country.

I was born to be a fighter so I want to fight for our community.
