Published 9:48am Thursday, April 3, 2014

Van Glasscock of

Hartselle, a businessman

with 16 years of experience,

is one of six candidates

seeking the

Republican Party nomination

for Morgan County

License Commissioner.

His candidacy is subject

to the June 3 Primary


Glasscock is a purchasing

agent for a national

automotive dealership, a

position he has held for

the past two years.

Previously, he worked in

wireless communications

as a store manager for 12

years and has two years of

experience in banking.

A lifelong resident of

Morgan County, he is a

graduate of Hartselle

High School, a graduate

of Wallace State

Community College with

an associate degree in

applied science and a

graduate of Athens State

University, where he

received a B.S. degree in

business administration.

If elected, Glasscock

said he would rely heavily

on his background in business

management to provide

the citizens of

Morgan County friendly,

fast and efficient service.

In a campaign statement,

he said he would insist on

high standards of employee

conduct with regard to

courtesy, respect and service,

minimize all transactions

times, with special

consideration for seniors

and disabled citizens and

broaden the use of the

Internet to help citizens

obtain information or handle

routine matters without

having to make a trip

to a license office.

His pledge follows: “As

we all know, current economic

conditions present

personal and governmental

challenges throughout

the nation. We are in

pressing economic times

throughout our state. Not

only will I work to

increase the efficiency of

this office to offset budget

limitations, but will at the

same time assure effective

customer service. Service

to the citizens of Morgan

County will remain my

top priority, and, if elected,

I will put the citizens

of Morgan County in the

driver’s seat.”
