Paul Higdon, a Macon County Republican running for the district three commission seat, allowed Macon County News to ask a few questions about his background and goals for Macon County. The Macon County News has allowed each sitting commissioner and commission candidates to give their side of the story in a question and answer session so that voters can know more about their governing philosophy.
Can you tell us a little about your background?
I grew up in Macon County where my family has lived for generations, graduated FHS in 1967, spent two years in the U.S. Army and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with degrees in Environmental Health Science and Biology. After college, I worked for Macon County Environmental Health Services for nearly 10 years and have been self employed in a small family business, Sewer Solutions Inc, for the last 16 years and I am also a partner in Reuse Innovations Inc.
