Josh Walker Announces Candidacy for Plymouth Mayor

December 4, 2018

Josh Walker of Plymouth officially declares his candidacy for the office of Mayor of the City of Plymouth in the 2019 elections. Walker, 35, a combat veteran of the 101st Airborne Division, is a resident of Plymouth, with a ten-year background in branding, marketing, and advertising.

“I’m proud and honored to announce my candidacy for mayor of Plymouth. Through my business, Recon Media, and various groups and nonprofits such as The Marshall County Neighborhood Center, the Young Professionals Network of Marshall County, and more, I’ve seen the potential our city has and the passion of the people and small businesses here.  I’ve decided to run to give the people of Plymouth a true voice who will both listen to and address their concerns. I look forward to continuing to meet people in the community and together, solving the challenges our city faces.”

Walker’s small business located in downtown Plymouth has been the recipient of numerous awards for their work for nonprofits and works primarily with businesses in and around Plymouth and Marshall County. Walker was also recently awarded the newly created Plymouth Chamber of Commerce Board Members Citizen of the Year award for his proactive volunteer efforts and leadership in Plymouth and Marshall County.

“The primary role of any mayor is to listen to and be an advocate for the people. They should be a vital and active servant leader, not afraid to put in the extra hours to make sure the job is done. When I speak with my neighbors and other concerned residents of our community, their needs and desires fully resonate with me. Our families and residents want a city that’s constantly growing, both economically and culturally. A city that is representative of all our residents and embraces them and their needs.”

Walker plans to continue his service to others by working to make Plymouth a stronger economic and cultural hub for families, small businesses, and visitors.

“I carry with me to this day two deeply-rooted principles that were always present in my platoon in the 101st Airborne: first, whatever you’re doing, leave it better than you found it, and secondly, don’t complain unless you have a solution. I believe we have a duty to make Plymouth stronger and more vibrant through efficiency, collaboration, and innovation. If elected Mayor of Plymouth, I will be a voice for all our citizens. I will always put our local small businesses first. I will lead by example with transparency and accountability.“
