ROCKWELL ó Rockwell alderman Tim Draper announced he is seeking re-election this November.
Draper, 42, currently serves as mayor pro tem for the Rockwell town board.
He’s running for office to “represent all the citizens of Rockwell for the present and the future. I will be up front and honest with them on every issue,” he said.
Draper’s priority for this race is to help manage Rockwell’s resources in this time of economic duress.
“I want to help improve economic development and continue with the revitalization of the downtown,” Draper said.
He said he’d also like to see Gold Hill Avenue get paved. It’s been a long-awaited project that the state for years has promised to completely pave.
“That’s been a priority for many years,” he said.
Draper is a 1985 graduate of Central Davidson Senior High School. He acquired his N.C. contractor license and N.C. real estate license through Davidson County Community College and Mingle School of Real Estate.
Draper is a general contractor and owner of Draper Construction Inc.
He served in the United States Air Force for four years.
He is a member of the Rockwell Planning Board, Rowan Shrine Club and Grace Bible Church.
The following candidates have also filed for the Rockwell city race: Beau Taylor, mayor; Chuck Bowman, alderman; Timothy Crews, alderman.
