Walter Daniels III announces his candidacy for Mayor of the Town of Amite City
After many hours of prayer, I, Walter Daniels III, am officially announcing my candidacy for Mayor of the Town of Amite City. I want to help our town, our citizens and our children have a hometown to be proud of. I am fully dedicated to helping our businesses succeed, our town to having parks and recreation areas for our children and keeping our town a safe place for all of us.
I served as a Town Councilman for 23 years before serving four years as a school board member. With this experience, I feel I know the needs of our town and its citizens. During my tenure as councilman, we adopted the garbage system that we now all depend on. The Florida Parish Arena became a reality and with establishing housing for elderly and handicapped.
With the uncertain times, we all face, I believe I can pull our city together for the benefit of all. I am presently serving as Interim Mayor after the untimely death of Mayor Buddy Bel. I have an open door policy, if you need me call City Hall at 985-748-8761 to set an appointment. I am open to hearing your needs, your advice or just your thoughts.
As a lifelong resident of Amite, I am a graduate of West Side High School and attend Butler AME Zion Church.
Hopefully, with mask on, I will be out personally meeting more of our citizens and asking you for your vote on November 3, 2020.
