Citizens Endorsement/Hewitt & Beth Smith
Hewitt and I would like to say we have been friends with Tommy & Carol Wheless for 30+ years. During this time, we have seen Tommy spend countless hours devoting his time, money, resources & knowledge within Oglethorpe County. This hasn’t just been at the Sheriff’s Department but also throughout the Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce, the school system, FFA/Ag Department, and his church.
Over the years Tommy has not only been a faithful & honest friend, but also a very trustworthy and educated business man. Tommy manages employees and contractors on a daily basis. This is done on multiple job sites each day. Tommy is responsible for managing a budget that covers all aspects financially but also leaves room for business growth and development.
Over the years we have seen Tommy serve countless hours within the Sheriff’s Department for our county. This work was done after Tommy had already put in 10 – 12 hours of work at his day job.
Hewitt & I truly feel that Tommy Wheless will not only be an active Sheriff, but he will also be an asset to Oglethorpe County. We feel as though Tommy Wheless has the Christian values, work ethic and the drive that is needed to be Sheriff of Oglethorpe County. Tommy has also worked within the Oglethorpe County Sheriff’s Department and has first-hand knowledge of what is needed within the Department.
Please take the time to vote on Tuesday, July 26. Oglethorpe County needs change and Tommy Wheless is the person who can do this.
