Elected to office in August 1994 he is responsible for maintaining approximately 1,282 miles of roads and 160 plus bridges in Blount County. Approximately 55 miles of re-paving is scheduled each year. State aid for the replacement or repair of 62 of these bridges is available, with the state incurring 80% of the cost and Blount County 20% of the cost.
