Danny Gillum has been in public service for nearly 30 years and hopes to become Ford County 3rd District Commissioner to further his service.
For the past eighteen years, Gillum has worked at Dodge City Community College.
“This position greatly enhanced my ability to manage budgets, build relationships, and work with community, state and federal agencies,” Gillum said. “I understand that staying within budgets is not only good stewardship, but it is expected from the citizens of Ford County.”
A main goal of Gillum's is to work with industries in the area to encourage growth and proper use of tax dollars. He looks forward to sitting down with different industries to figure out their needs.
He also expressed his interest and ability in working not only with the seniors in the community, but also the youth. He said he thinks local law enforcement has done a great job in keeping youth out of gangs but that he wants to assist in any way he can if elected as commissioner.
“I'm ready,” Gillum said. “It's time and I'm excited to begin talking to people and being able to work with them.”
