Our County Commissioner Candidates

Jim Cain

I bring to Ashe County an educational, work and accomplishment list spanning more than 30 years. I also bring a reputation built during that time as a Manager, Director, Leader, and Commander who understands and uses appropriate technologies, is not afraid to ask questions to determine the facts, and actively works to solve problems. I have been repeatedly called upon to do things that others couldn’t at the State, National, and International levels. Ask me when you see me.

I believe these personal attributes and the education, skills, and experiences that created them make me the Commissioner candidate of choice. Read more...

Russell Killen

My name is Russell M. Killen and I am a lifelong resident of Ashe County. I am 58 years old and have been married to my wife, Diane Roland Killen for 34 years. We attend Jefferson United Methodist Church. I am the father of two daughters, Whitney Killen and Jessica Roland Hamilton, and have two grandchildren, Sawyer and Addisen. I graduated from Ashe Central High School in 1979, and became a graduate of Mendenhall School of Auctioneering in 1987. In the same year I started my business, Mountain Auction Company, Inc., which I currently operate from the Old Cattle Market in Crumpler. I have over 40 years of public relations experience through my roles as a manager, employer, and small-business owner.  Read more...
