ELECT D.I. ALDERMAN-AT-LARGE - Ridgeland; Tuesday, Feb 7, 2012
Ridgeland -- D.I. Smith has officially announced his campaign for election as City of Ridgeland Alderman at Large.
D.I. pledges to maintain his commitment to low taxes, open government
and job creation. “We have a great city because our neighborhoods are
strong, our business climate is favorable and our taxes are affordable.”
“As your next Alderman at large, I want to build on these strengths
while making Ridgeland greater through the South East Ridgeland
Redevelopment and protecting our property values through strong code
enforcement and being proactive in fighting crime."
D.I. earned the reputation as a watchdog for taxpayers over the last
four years when he helped raise awareness about property taxes in
Madison County and provided online resources for taxpayers and to stay
informed about issues in the community.
Smith was a champion of homeowner issues as a member of the Madison
County Board of Supervisors. He led the fight to renew curbside
recycling for the County and helped subdivisions get speedbumps, signage
and additional traffic calming measures, and DI took the lead on
informing property owners about the new FEMA flood maps, allowing
effected subdivisions and property owners to take timely action to avoid
massive increases in their property insurance costs.
DI Smith is a member of the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership,
Ridgeland Chamber of Commerce, the City of Madison Chamber, the Madison
County Chamber of Commerce, Military Officers Association of America,
Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association, Army Aviation Association of
America, the Army War College Alumni Association, and the
Madison-Ridgeland American Legion Post. He has also done extensive
research, writing and speaking about programs affecting the military.
