“Walton County is a great place to live, work and play,” Davis said. “As a sixth generation Walton County resident and a second-generation Walton County businessman, I am living out those benefits day by day. My wife Lauren and I are raising our three children in Walton County because of the way of life this county has provided.”

While Davis and his family are benefiting from the quality of life offered in Walton County, he said it is vital to maintain those resources for future generations.

“Our county is on the verge of urbanization and development,” Davis said. “We must take steps to preserve our land and its resources, for our future generations. As Chairman, I plan to do that with honest representation, unbiased leadership and good stewardship of the county’s resources.”

•Respect the Walton way of life: “I will work, each day, to preserve the things that make Walton great while looking to ways to continue to make Walton the bet county for its people. Our parks, ball fields and public common areas deserve to be in the best condition to provide the best experience for the citizens.”
•Support local businesses: “The local Walton County businesses are a huge part of what makes our county great. I will push for local businesses in our county over the ‘big box’ retails. I know how to work with people to fight for local businesses.”
