Cameron W. Beasley, 45-year-old resident of Emanuel, has announced his candidacy for the county commission race for Ward 5, which covers Oak Park, Stillmore, and Twin City.
This is Beasley’s first time running for any office. He came to the decision to enter the race in March 2020.
“I have talked with multiple individuals in the district about hazardous road conditions as well as other resolved issues in our area,” he said. “I feel that with their concerns and my voice, I can help work on the current issues within the county.”
Beasley is a native of Aline and graduated from Metter High School in 1994. He attended Swainsboro Tech and became a certified nursing assistant in 1993, then spent 12 years with different hospitals and nursing homes using that CNA degree to help with the day-to-day care of patients.
Today, he holds numerous heavy equipment certifications. He has worked as a heavy equipment mechanic with W.S. Newell, Inc. as well as lead technician with Trugreen Lawn, both of which are located in Montgomery, Alabama.
“After working some time with Trugreen, I found a passion for organic lawn control, which led me to start the first organic lawn care company in Montgomery,” he said. “I designed organic weed control, fertilizer, and mosquito control for many surrounding cities. While operating my own business, I was in charge of the hiring process as well as the training courses to help my employees better understand the fundamentals of proper organic lawn care.”
Beasley is currently co-owner of Bulloch Hydraulics, LLC, which has two fully functional facilities. The main location is in Register while the other is in Oak Park. Its daily operation is to ensure all customers receive quality hydraulic repairs, hose assembly, lathe work, and excellent customer service.
In addition, he is currently enrolled in the first responder course through Swainsboro Fire Department and has recently began volunteering with Oak Park Shiners.
When asked what some of his goals would be if he were elected, Beasley replied that he would like to help bring more jobs and work closely with the mayors of all communities to help them better their towns.
“District 5 is my home. Though I moved away for some time, coming back and being a part of my roots again has encouraged me to stand up for those who feel like their concerns are not being heard. I want to be the voice for our small community and help aid in the progression of my home,” Beasley said. “Emanuel County is a beautiful, enriching place to start a family and put down roots. Emanuel County had always been a part of my heart, and if I am elected commissioner, I would work endlessly to enrich the foundation of our past, present, and future.”

He is the proud husband of Catina Beasley; the two have been married for 10 years. They have three children: Billy (Kayla) Williams, Tiffany (Jeffrey) Clifton, and Alex (Devin) Roberson. His mother is the late Judy Beasley, and his father is Wesley (Carmen) Beasley Jr.
