Danny Davis has announced his intent to seek the Republican nomination for the office of Hopkins
County Treasurer. Davis is currently the Veterans Service Officer for Hopkins County. When asked
about his plans as the Veterans Service Officer, if elected as County Treasurer, he said, “I will
remain the Veteran Service Officer for Hopkins County. I will work smarter and harder…flexibility
is the key. By combining my office with that of the County Treasurer, I will be able to decline
the salary for the Veteran Service Officer position and the County will reap the benefit of saving
Davis, the son of Pastor Al and Naomi Davis of Grace Family Church and 20 year residents of Hopkins
County, has dedicated his life to the service of others. He learned to serve at home through the
faithful example of Christian parents and has carried that core value on to serve his country and
now wants to serve the people of Hopkins County.
As a 23 yr. Veteran of the Air Force with multiple deployments to the Middle East he understands
commitment and has promised three things that he learned while serving his Country, “Integrity
First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All That I Do.” During his time in the Air Force he
garnered extensive experience in working with large budgets, procurement, and management of people
and assets. He held multiple positions as a resource advisor, budget analyst, program/project
manager, and equipment custodian where he oversaw the ethical use of government credit cards,
vehicles, facilities, and other resources with a budget of over $22M.
He believes, “serving as County Treasurer is a sacred trust; therefore, the people of Hopkins
County need to know that the revenue from their taxes and other sources will be collected and kept
safe until needed.” He understands that the mission of the treasurer’s office is to provide
accountability, protect, and disburse those funds as directed by the local governing body.
His 5 tours in the Middle East contributed to his recognition as one of the 12 Outstanding Airmen
of the United States Air Force in 2009 by Air Mobility Command. Additionally, he was recognized
several times as non-commissioned officer of the year and for benchmarking an Air Force wide
program that revolutionized processing first-term Airmen into their initial duty assignment. He is
a graduate of the Community College of the Air Force with a degree in Human Resources and
Southwestern Assemblies of God University at Waxahachie in Biblical Study.
