Terri Lynn Rogers has announced her candidacy as a District 2 representative on the Lincoln County Commission in the Aug. 2 election.

A native of Lincoln County, she was raised and educated here, as were her two daughters. She and her husband of 31 years, Kewin, own and operate two businesses here.

“I, like most of us, am very vested in Lincoln County and its success,” said Rogers. “I want it to thrive and be a great place for my future grandkids to live.

“I have entered this race, because I hope that I can help drive our beautiful county forward to become a place that our children enjoy living in and want to stay to raise their children in,” she said. “School age children are a great concern of mine. I want their education to be excellent, and I want their non-school hours to be spent in activities that are building blocks to mature adults. I want a facility available to them that offers year-round activities. When you love living where you do, you want to stay and start businesses that create jobs, and help build it strong.”

Continuing, Rogers said she tries to live her life in a way that is helpful. She and her family support organizations that do that, she said, noting their support of St. Jude’s Research Hospital, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in both Lincoln and Marshall counties, and Goodwill. In addition they donate school supplies annually.

“I am interested in conservation, which is why I recycle and have chosen not to use campaign signs on the roads because of visual pollution,” she said. “Instead I am pounding pavement hoping to meet as many District 2 voters that I can. I want to add your personal concerns to my own.

“I am a hard worker, though some say hard headed, but when I am convicted about an issue that needs attention, I guess they are right! I can be a bulldog! I love Lincoln County!

“I feel like our county is stuck in a rut, and I want to help get it out and move forward,” she added.
