Why did you decide to seek public office?

Williams: Try to make Davie County a better place to live in.

What do you think are the most significant challenges facing the county, and how do you intend to address those challenges?

Williams: I am tired of seeing place torned down like the high school torned down for five million dollars; man payed sixty seven thousand dollars to take the bricks away. Hospital torned down because insurance pay money to torn down the hospital. Hospital could be used as a nursing home. High school could be used as a office building and musems.

What are the top qualities that should be considered for a county manager? What salary range should Davie County pay its manager?

Williams: Have a college education. Pay what every he is getting now.

Other Issues

Williams: The sheriff office and health department has been moved to the old Boyce Furniture building near Interest 40 and on Farmington Road. Bermuda wanted it moved closer because they do not like driving, 14, 15 and 16 miles from their home.
