Having known Gary Hilliard for more than 24 years as a friend, employee and business associate, I have had the opportunity to witness Gary’s character on display in a number of ways.

First, Gary was always fair and patient when dealing with employees and or business associates.

Second, he was always a good listener to the ideas of others and when possible involved others in the decision-making process.

Third, as president of NexCycle and having to be involved many times in bottle bill legislation, I found Gary was always very through in his research and would articulate his ideas in a clear and concise manner. No matter what the outcome, Gary would always have the respect from everyone on both sides of the aisle.

This is why I feel Gary Hilliard, a Republican from Belgrade, would be an excellent state representative for the people of District 76.
