Tony is a dear friend to me and many others. He is a true southern gentleman. He has the fortitude, guts, intelligence, compassion,and awareness of human dignity that has made a tremendous difference in our community in promoting Human Rights.

He is dedicated to the education of political science and that encompasses all political leanings/NIC Trustee Christie Wood. More here
