"I am formally announcing my candidacy to seek the republican nomination for the district 4 seat of the Henderson County Board of Commissioners.

I have called Henderson County home for 52 years. I have fond memories of growing up in Henderson County as I witnessed the county itself grow. I am a graduate of East Henderson High School and attended Western Carolina University. I have completed extensive training and education in the public service sector.

During my early teens my parents instilled in me the values of serving and giving back to society. I entered the fire and rescue service over 34 years ago and have served as a firefighter, both volunteer and career, for over 34 years. Basically I have based my entire life on public service and assisting the people of Henderson County. I retired from law enforcement in Henderson County after 30 years of service. I currently hold the positions of reserve police officer with the City of Hendersonville, assistant chief as well as sitting member of the board of directors of Dana Fire and Rescue, and currently am employed full time as a firefighter/engineer with Etowah Fire and Rescue.
Faith is an important part of my life. I attend The Bridge Church where I also serve on the Board of Trustees. For many years I have enjoyed raising money to benefit causes that have touched my heart which include the Special Olympics and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

I am married to the tremendous and supportive Paula Caulder Griffin and the proud father of two daughters, Jordan McCarson and Lindsey Griffin. Raising a family in Henderson County has been an extraordinary experience for me. I have been asked by many people to seek the position of commissioner and one of the reasons that I have accepted the challenge is to ensure that the quality of life in Henderson County remains an exceptional place for other families to grow and thrive."
