Republican Oconee Board of Commissioners Candidate Criticizes Current Board In Comments To Oconee County Republican Party

***Legislators, Mayor, Other Candidates Also Speak***

Aaron Nowak, running as a Republican in the special election for Post 3 on the Oconee County Board of Commissioners, introduced himself to Oconee County Republicans last month as a critic of the current Board of Commissioners and its policies and an advocate for conservative Republican values.

Nowak said his candidacy is based on three core ideas: thoughtful development, financial responsibility, and citizen engagement.

He said the current Board of Commissioners, made up entirely of Republicans, is failing on all three of these ideas.
