Donald Hughes – Randolph County Eastern District Commisioner

“A New View”

Hi, my name is Donald Hughes and I am running for Randolph County Eastern District Commissioner in the November 6, 2012 election. I am on the Democratic ticket, but I am a representative of all people. I grew up in a rural area, and know what it means to work hard.  I hauled hay, fed stock, worked in tobacco, planted soy beans and corn, and many other farm related jobs.  I have been with the juvenile office for 19 years. I have worked with and for many families in our community. I believe I have a genuine knowledge of the needs of our community. Upon my retirement, I will be able to invest the effort and time necessary to fulfill the requirements of this position.

I look forward to visiting with you soon.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
