“Not only has Joe Wicker bravely fought for his country in Iraq, achieving the rank of Captain and serving as a Tank Platoon Leader, he has succeeded in the business world as well as a manager for International Paper in charge of over $20 million in supply chain services. He has the perfect combination of real world experience needed to do this important job,” said Representative Harrison.
“My message of making government do more with fewer tax dollars resonates with voters and elected officials from all over our communities. I am encouraged by such a commanding start,” said Wicker.
