  • A local businessman, past candidate and the son of a longtime Washington County Commissioner, Greg Aldred is a familiar name to many.  The spiky-haired, silver-goateed owner of a pair of black belts in karate has a definite style all his own.

    A self-described conservative Republican who’s held leadership positions with groups like the Dixie Republican Forum, Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce and Dixie Sunshiners, Aldred said he has a different set of skills than some.  He touts his experience in building and development as a contractor and his knowledge of renewable energy systems as evidence that he would be best-equipped to pursue high-tech industry and implement smart-growth principles in the county’s decision making efforts.

    “This is the greatest place to play on Earth, and we need to take care of that,” he said.  “We’re an outdoor people, a lot of us, and definitely we need to do what we can to keep the air clean and protect what we have.”

    At the same time, he’s supportive of new development and infrastructure projects to bring the county the resources it needs to grow.

    Aldred said he wants to preserve some of the area’s small-town feel, saying he loves the Washington County community that his father, the late Gayle Aldred, helped to create during his tenure on the commission from 1988 to 2002.
