Zach currently works as a realtor with Graham & David real estate and he is also a co-operator of the Christiansburg livestock market.
Zach’s three main reasons for running for the District C seat are
- He is a fiscal conservative and wishes to cut wasteful spending.
- He believes in private property rights for the citizens of Montgomery County.
- He wants to bring in new businesses for Montgomery County.
On his campaign site, Zach writes,
“As a lifelong resident of Eastern Montgomery, I know what policies are needed to jump start our economy and improve the quality of life of our residents. In fact, I’m running for two distinct reasons.
First, we need to increase our community’s population and retain talented individuals in order to boost economic development. I will work to improve access to affordable and quality housing. Simplifying the process to obtain rural high speed Internet access will also help achieve this goal.
Second, I will work to resolve issues affecting private property. As District C Supervisor, I will fight to keep real estate taxes low and maintain the current land use valuation. I will also work to reduce commercial property vacancy rates in our region and reform zoning rules so businesses can thrive in Eastern Montgomery.
My grandfather Joe Stewart was a farmer and former District C Supervisor for over twenty years. He instilled in me the values of hard work, determination and community service. I look forward to a positive campaign where I will share my values and vision with East Mont citizens.”
