Candidate plans run for Glynn board

A St. Simons Island man has announced his intention to represent the island on the Glynn County Commission.

Dale Provenzano, 55, says he wants to run for the District 2 seat currently held by Commissioner Tom Sublett.

Sublett is not seeking reelection.

Provenzano said his management experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry gives him prioritizing skills that will be useful for the county.

"There seems to be an awful lot of downsizing that needs to take place in the county. Due to my experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry, I've had to deal with that a lot," he said.

This would be Provenzano's first run at political office. He said after living in Glynn County for 22 years, he recently got involved with the local Republican Party and was motivated to enter the political arena.

Provenzano is a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and managed operations at major hotels and Six Flags amusement parks in Atlanta and Dallas before moving to Glynn County.

The four-year term would start Jan. 1. Qualifying for the July primaries starts today and will continue until noon Friday.

Independents must qualify between July 30 and noon Aug. 3.

The primary is July 31 and the general election Nov. 6.

what exactly is your job now?

dale- what have you done lately? Seems like you haven't worked. Working in a bar does not prepare you for politics.

What exactly needs to be downsized in the county???? When will the reporters actually ask a question. They just rewrite the press release and and get the byline.
