Dr. Jerry Butler to Run for State Senate
Dr. Jerry Butler announced at the Republican Christmas Party, he will be running for the state senate next year. Touched a little emotionally, Dr. Butler shared with the group his early childhood in a family who had adopted him and who taught him the values of hard work. Those values helped him work his way through school. Because of his experience in a farm family, his building of small businesses here in Watauga County, his professional life as a dentist, and his many community service roles, he knows he can understand the needs of citizens from many walks of life. He sees himself as very people focused. Because he describes himself as a conservative, we are of course, very excited to have him running.
