Julie Ray announces her candidacy for Holly Pond Town Council, place 1. 

Julie is a lifelong resident of Holly Pond, where she was taught to have a great work ethic. Her family has been a considerable part of her success. Julie’s grandfather, Arlin Moon, was a renowned instrument maker and taught her how to play music from a young age. Her mother, Betty Moon Sampson, taught her vocals and music, but most importantly, encouraged her to live out her dream. Her father, Dwight Ray, would teach her how to buck dance and get the crowd involved. Julie remembers many late nights as a youngster in the Red Barn across from her parent’s house where people would gather to watch live bluegrass music shows while enjoying unbelievable country cooking.

Julie has worked in the medical field for the last 10 years, where she was able to live her dream of caring for the community. She feels now is the time to take her expertise and passion for helping others to the next level. 

Julie wants to make Holly Pond a brighter place to live and raise a family. Her exemplary skills and commitment to serving others make her an excellent candidate. Her leadership qualities are based on a love for God and helping Holly Pond grow and prosper.
