I am “an open book” on my stances on issues

I have more information out about what I believe and stand for than any other candidate on the ballot. Here is just a reminder that I have six and a half years of newspaper columns I wrote for The Selma News still online and available for your reading pleasure and research. I am pretty much an open book between my columns, material I publish here and on my Facebook page, as well as my YouTube page.

Early voting ends in just two days. Election day is just five days from now. Be informed. Vote wisely. Vote for Troy.

I am a happily married guy living in Selma, North Carolina with my wife and three boys. I have a background in radio broadcasting, fire protection, and some technical/computer experience. I currently am employed as a Senior Engineering Specialist at one of the world's largest media and entertainment companies (company policy is that I should not mention the name). I have been a newspaper columnist, blogger, podcaster, and a TV and radio talk show host. I still occasionally get to do voice-overs for radio and television as well as video productions. I have been known to run for public office, run P.A. systems at churches, and volunteer with some scouting organizations. I have a love for God, my family, and my country, and I admit that I fall short on patience when people mess with any of those three. I have had a lifelong love/hate relationship with both politics and religion, and don't shy from having opinions on either. My hobbies include shooting, theology, and using, fixing, and enjoying fountain pens.
