“I, Jeff W. Weathers, am writing to announce my intentions to qualify to seek the position of Chair of the Tattnall County Board of Commissioners. As a lifelong resident of this community, I have seen firsthand the changes and challenges our county faces.  I believe that I have the skills, experience, and dedication to help shape our county’s future.

“My commitment to community outreach and involvement will be the foundation of my campaign.  I believe that it is essential for elected officials to be accessible and responsive to their constituents.  If elected, I will work tirelessly to strengthen our communities and improve the quality of life for all residents.

“My wife, Georgia (Howard) Weathers, and I raised our sons, Johnathan and Jacob, in Glennville and the Gooseneck Community.  I am family oriented, and I enjoy my pastimes with friends, family, fishing, gardening, and sports.

“I am a 1980 graduate of Glennville High School and a 1982 graduate of Swainsboro Technical College where I received certification in vehicle and equipment maintenance and repairs.

“My work experience includes nine years as Maintenance Engineer and over 30 years in the maintenance, upkeep, and repair of Georgia’s highway infrastructure plus 24/7 on-call response to emergencies with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) in Tattnall and surrounding counties.  During my tenure with GDOT, I was a recipient of the Commissioner’s Merit Award for work ethics and dedication.  Prior to working with GDOT, I worked several years with Department of Corrections (DOC) and the Tattnall County Road Department.

“In addition, I have over 40 years of heavy equipment operating and training.

“My skills include supervising teams, scheduling, procurement, mediation, negotiation, cost, and managing budgets. At the GDOT, I facilitated the development of the Skills Development course for all newly hired employees.  I was an instructor who taught these skills to teams under my instruction for several years.

“My civic duties include eight years on the Board of Equalization, volunteer coach, mentor, and umpire and referee with the Glennville Recreation Department for 22 years where I also served eight years as a board member.

“Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to earning your support.” Jeff W. Weathers
