Donny Sims

Candidate for

Chancery Clerk of Attala County

Dear Voters of Attala County,

I would like to thank, commend, and congratulate Mr. Gerry Taylor for his many years of exceptional, dedicated service as our current Chancery Clerk.

I was born and raised in Attala County and grew up in the Williamsville Community, where I currently live and have lived most of my life, except for a two year period while working for the State Tax Commission as an Enforcement Agent and during my military deployments.  I have been an active member of Williamsville Baptist Church for the last 50 years.  I have been married to Ceressa Nowell Sims for over 44 years, and together we have two grown sons, Jason and Jordan, daughter-in-law Sarah, granddaughter Kennedy, and grandson Pierce, who is due mid-April.  Although I received my AA, BA, and Master’s degrees from Holmes Community College, Mississippi State University and Delta State University, I am very grateful to God for having the privilege of growing up in Attala County where I gained a solid foundation in common sense.  I am also very grateful to have had parents that instilled in me examples of what it meant to have a servant’s heart.

I am very much aware of the vital importance of the responsibilities of fulfilling the duties of Chancery Clerk and I believe that my background has fully prepared me to execute the duties of this office.

I have over forty years of experience working in city, state, federal government (law enforcement, U.S. Postal Service), and the military.  I am a 30+ year military veteran with the United States Air Force and Mississippi Air National Guard.  While in the military I served as Operations Group Commander and Vice Wing Commander, where I gained valuable experience working with large military budgets and inspections/audits, ensuring compliance with applicable rules and regulations.  I retired as an O-6 Colonel, and received a State of Mississippi promotion to O-7 Brigadier General.  I am currently working with the Mississippi Air National Guard in Jackson as a Department of Defense Air Force Contractor.

I believe that my experience and previous responsibilities in public service with city, state, federal agencies and the military have given me the qualifications to be a dedicated public servant as your Attala County Chancery Clerk.

From my Christian faith and military service comes a deep sense of duty to serve others.   Regardless of any national party affiliation, color, or creed, the office of Chancery Clerk is your office, and I am committed to you to work hard to keep your office at its best.  I am grateful for our freedom in America to be able to run for public office, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the citizens of Attala County.

I am humbly asking for your consideration, your prayers, and your vote for Chancery Clerk.
