      ANDRE OVERHOLT

I have called Polk County home for 27 years and now, I feel it is time to start giving back to the place that has already given me so much.  I was a home schooled student up until my freshman year of high school where I attended Polk County High. I graduated high school in 2011 and went on to play football, and obtain a bachelor’s degree in Business and Organizational Leadership at Brevard College in Brevard, NC.

Right out of college in 2015, I joined the Main Street Insurance Agency team in Tryon NC where I continue to work and serve the people in Polk and surrounding counties. I also married my wife of 5 years, Katie Overholt, in 2015 and became a father to Breelyn Overholt in October of 2018. We’re expecting our second child in October of this year.

Growing up in the county I have built many great relationships with the people within its borders. This is one of the many reasons I am running for County Commissioner. I want to be able to serve the people of this county and represent their interests to the best of my ability. The politicians today, in many ways, no longer represent the people they are called upon to serve and completely miss the mark of a public servant. As a husband and father of a young family in this county, I recognize the importance of having a voice that represents the families of the county and will listen to the people. That is my goal in running to be a County Commissioner.
