Former Canonsburg Borough councilman and North Strabane Resident Allen "AJ" Williams is pleased to announce that he will be entering the race for Washington County Commissioner.

Williams, 27, a Democrat, is a 2006 graduate of Canon McMillan and a proud alumnus of Washington and Jefferson College. He currently resides in Strabane with his wife, Savannah, and their two sons, Kamden and Micah. He is employed at South Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram as a finance manager. Williams previously served on Canonsburg Borough Council, becoming the youngest member to be elected to that position.

During his time on council, Mr. Williams played an integral part in the beautification and enhancement of Canonsburg Town Park and Pool. As a freshman member of council, Williams was selected by his peers to sit on the negotiating committee, which was successful in reaching a fair contract without any adverse effects to the budget or taxpayers' pockets.

Mr. Williams stated, "I've never been one to sit back and complain; instead I prefer to take action and make a difference. I am very disheartened by the increasing number of violent crimes and drug-related overdoses in Washington County. We need to become proactive to these issues, and work collaboratively through all levels of government to help out our communities and citizens." He continued, "Our county government needs to be a helping hand to our municipalities. They need to show that they are concerned, [and] that can't be done in ballrooms and fancy functions!"

Williams believes that parts of Washington County are definitely highly sought destinations for businesses and families that are looking to relocate; however, officials cannot become complacent and must focus on other parts of the county that are struggling. "The focus cannot be solely on commerce. We have to look at the quality of life and the daily struggles of people in our less fortunate communities!"
