Trey Downs Campaign has Eventful Weekend of Community Service!
This weekend was an eventful and effective one for Oconee County Sheriff Candidate Trey Downs. Downs, a true public servant, went from cleaning up trash to meeting with members of the community to attending a dedication to Confederate soldiers all in two busy days. On Saturday, April 21, Downs and twenty-three of his supporters participated in the Great American Cleanup in Oconee County. Beginning at 8:30 A.M., the team cleaned up 171.5 pounds of trash from the side of Cole Springs Road. After delivering the trash and sorting out the recyclables, he drove to Hickory Lake for a meet and greet. While there he met many wonderful members of Oconee County and listened to their concerns about the way the law is currently being enforced in their community.
On Sunday morning, Trey Downs attended the Confederate memorial service held by the Brig. Gen. T.R.R. Cobb Camp No. 97 Sons of the Confederate Veterans, a flagpole and monument dedication ceremony to honor Confederate soldiers buried in Oconee County at Watkinsville Cemetery. The names of 34 Confederate soldiers buried there were read aloud as flags were raised in their honor. This was a special ceremony for the Downs family, as their ancestor was recognized for his service. It was also a great opportunity for Downs to meet with more members of the community. Downs and his campaign look forward to numerous similar events planned for the coming months.
