Candidate's Statement

                                  “THE RIGHT CHOICE AT THE RIGHT TIME

       Hi, my name is Jessica Varnes Ward, and I am seeking the office of County Commissioner in District 5 for Franklin County.

        I am the daughter of Bruce and Lois Varnes and the late Amelia Varnes of Apalachicola. I am 41 years old and have been married to Jim Ward for 16 yrs. I have been a resident of Franklin County for 23 years having moved here when I was 11 years old. I graduated from Apalachicola High School in 1997. I moved away to attend college obtaining an Associate of Science degree in Respiratory Care from Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL and finished my internship at Shands at the University of Florida. Upon graduation from College, Franklin County called me back, and I have been here ever since.

     I love Franklin county and feel it is time for a change. I want to be an active voice and advocate for District 5, and ALL of Franklin County citizens as your County Commissioner. I am a leader, not a follower, and I feel that this is a trait, along with many others any elected official should possess. Public comments mean something to me, and your voice should be heard. It would be an honor to be your voice.

     If elected, I will ensure well informed decisions are made because these decisions affect our well-being, livelihood, and the future of our beloved county. I aim to be an active listener to my constituents, and be responsive to their concerns and questions, be impartial, utilize effective communication, and most importantly, be honest, and have the utmost integrity.

     If you have any questions and would like to contact me, I can be reached at 850-323-0325 or feel free to email me at

     I sincerely appreciate your support and vote on November 3rd, 2020. Thank you!
