Election ’09: Webb wants another term in China Grove

CHINA GROVE ó Twenty-two years on the town board isn’t enough for Don Webb.
He’s asking voters to put him back in office. He filed Friday for a four-year term on the Town Council.
The 71-year-old Webb said he is running to ensure that all citizens are treated with respect. “I want to treat all citizens as equals and not show favoritism,” he said in a filing statement.
Among his priorities is improving streets and existing sidewalks. He also cited the need for low taxes and low water and sewer rates as well as improving the town’s curbside services.
He was knocked off the board in 2003 when a write-in wave swept the town.
A retired N.C. Department of Corrections employee, he currently works part time at Linn-Honeycutt Funeral Home.
Retired from the Army and National Guard, Webb has served in local and district VFW posts and is the current president of the Rowan County Veterans Council. He also serves as a member of the family readiness group for the 1454th Transportation Co. based in Concord.
A resident of 902 South Main St., he is a member of the town’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and the town’s Zoning Board of Adjustments. A graduate of China Grove High School, he has attended numerous fire, rescue and military schools.
