Mike Parker Announces Candidacy for BOCC

To All Citizens of Prowers County:

It is with great pleasure and vision that I announce my candidacy for the office of Prowers County Commissioner for District One. I am concerned for the economic future of Prowers County and want to dedicate my time to the betterment of Prowers County by being the best representation of all Prowers County residents. I feel I have the experience and drive to get Prowers County into a much needed economic growth track, so that we can once again thrive as a growing community.

I am 47 years old; I was born and raised in Prowers County. I am married to my wife, Jonna, and together we have four daughters, Colleen, Rebecca, Jacqueline and Jordan. I graduated from Lamar High School and served in the United States Army for seven years. I have been a Lamar Chamber of Commerce member for fifteen years. In this organization, I served as a board member for two years and was the President for one term. I have been a member of the Lamar Elk’s Lodge for seventeen years and served as the Exalted Ruler for two consecutive years. I have also been a member of the Lamar Eagles for seventeen years. I have owned and operated my own business in Prowers County for sixteen years.

You, the citizens of Prowers County, have the right to be the voice of improvement. I am asking for your support in my dedication to grow the economic base of Prowers County. I am a Republican that believes we need to revive Prowers County, so that our future generations can live in a prosperous community. I believe that we need to modify our overall government spending to ensure a balanced budget to secure a firm foundation for continued growth and success as a county.

I would appreciate your vote to elect me as the Prowers County Commissioner for District One in 2012.


Mike Parker
