I am excited about the direction that Blount County is moving. We are still in a fight to get things going in a different direction but we are doing it together. This county is a family and we have a history of sticking together and helping each other. Recently we've fallen on some difficult times that has everyone searching for answers. I am confident that we, Blount Countians, will continue to come together and rise above the heartache and turmoil to be unified once again. This is a great county with a lot more good than bad, and we must join together to restore Blount County to what it once was. To me and to so many more this is HOME, always has been, always will be. I love you Blount County no matter what. We truly are better together.
