Holt is currently in his 25th year with a Fortune 500 Company. During his career he has been successful in managing multi-million dollar budgets and supervising employees at local and regional levels. He has worked closely with many contractors, small businesses and large corporate clients throughout Bartow County.
"I would like to continue the tradition of excellence that both VaLenda Bailey and Jack Nally have established in their service," Holt said. "I believe that I can bring the personal drive and skills I have learned in being part of a successful company to government in order to serve the people of Bartow County. During this unfortunate economic downturn, families have learned to make every dollar go as far as possible. I believe it is the responsibility of government to do the same. Citizens are working harder than ever for every dollar they earn. It is a serious responsibility to be entrusted with the care of this hard-earned money. I do not take this responsibility lightly. I will always remember who I work for. I work for you."
