"I was raised in rural DeSoto County where I learned the importance of faith, family, and service.  I was taught the small-town values of hard work, respect, and responsibility. It is in my nature to protect and serve others.  I spent 19 years in law enforcement with Hernando Police and the DeSoto County Sheriff's Department where I helped create the county's first SWAT team and Motorcycle Patrol Unit.  I was appointed Supervisor of District 5 to serve the rest of my brother Harvey Lee's term after his death.  I'm also a small-business owner, continuing in my father's footsteps as a barber.  I am proud to say I have five children and eight grandchildren. I still live in Hernando with my wife, Mary Helen, and my mother, Mrs. Joane."
