Chattooga County Resident Jeff Coley qualified as a Republican to run for Sole Commissioner of Chattooga County.
Coley released the following news release:
My name is Jeff Coley, I am running for Chattooga County Commissioner. Many of you have known me for years, but for those who do not, I want to tell you a little about myself. I have lived here all my life, growing up I went to church & school in Trion. I am the son of Leon & Sue Coley (former owners of Flowers N Such Florist), the brother of Scott Coley (owner of Coley & Norton Mechanical), the father of Rachel & Rebecca Coley and the husband of Marcy Coley.
I began working at age 14, bagging groceries at Hurley’s in Trion, then on to Trion Drugs delivering meds. After graduating in 1988 I went to work for UPS, then on to Mohawk. At this time I had my two daughters. I then ran for city council in Lyerly & won my seat, later to become mayor pro tem at which time the council, civic club & myself added a new park pavilion, new playground & citywide sewer system. I had to resign my position because of relocating outside the city limits. I then got into the insurance business with A.G.L.A. where I advanced into management. After doing that for many years I got into real estate and opened a branch office for Home America Mortgage, here in Pennville, that I ran until the housing market crashed around 2008. I then built a large poultry farm which I currently operate. Since then I have grown the farm to include cattle & hay production. I am a member of Floyd County Wildlife Association, where I am also a member of the board. I love our beautiful county, our wonderful people and I want to see us all thrive & prosper. Vote for a change, help me save our county. Vote Jeff Coley Chattooga County Commissioner.

Let’s get the facts straight. People were helping me put out signs and put one on county right of way at edge of your yard. The day you ask me to pick it up I replied to you that I was out of town and I came the next day.

It seems odd that he preaches about building a new jail, but he is quick to point out that he is against raising property tax. Is that because he owns all that land and rental property? Just another wanna-be politician that wants us to foot the bill, not him.

I will not raise taxes to build a jail it has been raised enough!!! FYI ,I don’t own any rental property. Just curious how have I ask you to foot the bill for anything?
