Derrick for Dumfries Mayor

Vote Derrick Wood for
Dumfries Mayor May 1st, 2018

Councilman Derrick Wood

I served my country as a US Marine. I am serving the Town of Dumfries as a Town Councilman. Now, you can help me serve in a greater capacity as Mayor!

The reason I have decided to run for Mayor is that I believe in taking action and getting results for our community and the generations coming behind us. My results in the short time as a councilman include but is not limited to the following: awareness to lack of recycling education, created a commission for Parks and Recreation, started a summer concert series, voted to lower property taxes, voted to televise all council meetings, voted to create a revitalization zone for businesses and strip malls off Main Street, hosted community commonwealth and fitness day, and many more. There is still unfinished business and there is a gap between our community and the communities that surround us.

My goal is building safer communities by keeping unwanted activities out of our community, to expand on the economic development of Dumfries, to search out ways to bring in new jobs and alternatives to the real estate tax, to fight for reducing our communities long commute time to work, to focus on making our main street better, and to continue to challenge developers with every project to add to our infrastructure sidewalks, street lights and road improvements, and more importantly to continue to inspire others in the community to get involved. As you can imagine, campaigns are grueling. They require hard work and sacrifice. However, if you agree with me that I need to get involved and become the Mayor, then I humbly request your support in making this mission a reality.
