Dan has been the mayor of Brooks, Georgia since 2010, and prior to that, served on the town council since 1998. The town is still considered rural and is rich in Dan’s family history. He learned early on that he was the seventh generation of his family to leave footprints on the family farm. He soaked up Brooks stories like a sponge and today he is the local historian and a master in the art of storytelling.

For his day job, Dan works in finance at a not-for-profit organization in the area and also manages the family farm with his brother. His wife, Lesley, is the Lead Pastor at Brooks United Methodist Church and serves on the board of Flint Riverkeeper.

Dan and Lesley, who have been married since early 1989, have two grown sons and a what they refer to as a “BC grandson,” because he was born about three weeks before COVID descended upon America.
