Jimmy Hooper has announced that he plans to run for chairman of the Banks County Board of Commissioners.
In a letter to citizens announcing his intentions, Hooper wrote: “Many of you will ask why I am announcing my intentions so early. My answer is that I want to have enough time to meet every person living in Banks County. I intend to shake your hand and ask about your concerns. I want to be able to do this before the Republican primary on July 31.”
Hooper worked for three decades as a principal in the Banks County School System.
