I was Born and raised in Clermont. After graduating from Clermont High School, I attended Florida A & M University before entering the U S Air Force in 1975. I am a Gulf War Veteran, who retired from the U S Air Force in 1998, after serving more than twenty-two years of honorable service. In 1999, I began a second career with the U S Postal Service here in Clermont. I am in the process of retiring from the U S Postal Service, with twenty-one years of dedicated service to the residents of Clermont and Minneola, Florida. 

I am running for Clermont City Council Seat 3 - Mayor, to be the voice for sensible growth and transparency from our city officials. With all the new growth and development in Clermont, little attention has been given to the needs and desires of our younger residents. Meanwhile I returned to Clermont in 2001, to find that with all the new growth and development, there is far less for our younger residents to do than when I grew up here. I recall countless nights of  hanging out on the street curb, conversating with my friends about leaving Clermont, in order to make something of our lives and later returning to Clermont to give back to the community and make a difference. To fulfill that childhood dream, I proposed actions to bring a Boys and Girls Club to Clermont, which to include I served on the Boys and Girls Club Corporate Board and the Clermont Advisory Board. I served on Clermont's Code of Enforcement Board for three years and I served on two Citizens Advisory Task Force for the Community Development Block Grant. Presently, I serve on the Clermont's Planning and Zoning Board. In addition, I have worked with the Clermont Police Department on several community events and programs to help improve relations between residents and police and to reduce crime in the community.  

I will stay focused and work to bring living wage and employment to Clermont and to provide our youth employment opportunities after completing college. I will work to increase workforce housing (affordable living) and to increase the employment pool for local businesses and decrease the number of residents moving from Clermont, due to the cost of living.  I will fight to protect Clermont's Natural Resources because Clermont's Lakes are now under attack.

To win this race I need your vote and donations to purchase signs, flyers, mailings, and administrative supplies. All contributions will be used for campaign materials as my campaign staff consist of nonpaid volunteers. 

I am the fifth child of twelve children (eleven born in Clermont) born to the late, Lacie and Goldean Murry. My wife Kassier and I are proud parents of two young adults (Tiffany and Timothy II) and one teenage daughter (Karissa). 

I acquired three Associates in Arts Degrees, a Bachelor of Science (Management/Human Resource), and Master of Business Administration. I am a passionate Christian, who attends New Jacob's Chapel Missionary Baptist Church (NJCMBC) where I serve as Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees, Vice-Chair of the Family Matters Food Program, and a member of the Male Chorus.
