I would like to see more discipline in the school system. I believe that my school is tough on the wrong things. Also, I would like to see more community events to bring the county together.

Walker county is in north west Georgia located between multiple mountains. While the scenery is nice there is not much to do around here.
Drugs seem to be a big problem in this area but it doesn't really effect me.
