Rene Cowart

City of Adel

Term Expires: 2018

I was born and raised in AdeI, GA and now serve as the Electrical Superintendent. I am responsible for the Electric budget, Fiber coordination, Purchasing Agent and whatever else I am asked to do. In my spare time I like to work in the yard building tree houses for my grandson and for my second grandson that’s on the way. These are not the ordinary tree houses; they have a 200 ft. zip line coming from them. I also like to hunt, fish, coach my grandson’s baseball team with my son-in-law and any type of project at home. I attend church on a regular basis and let’s not forget how much I love my “honey do” list! I would like to tell you what annoys me but then you would know so I think I’ll keep that to myself. I will however let you in on something most people would be shocked to know; I have a son that plays MLB baseball and a daughter who will soon graduate with her Doctrine of Nurse Practitioner and is a full time nurse expecting her second son. Yes, I know what you are thinking, this may be a good time to take my dream vacation to Hawaii but then again, my wife (Tammy) and I am very proud of our kids and grandkids and love spending time with them! A good day for me would be listening to my favorite song “I can only imagine” by Mercy Me or eating grilled steak at home while watching my favorite baseball team and player; LA Angels - Kaleb Cowart. I also enjoy some good college football…GO DAWGS!

As you can see, I am a family man that loves my family. If I was given the chance to make a change in the world we live in; I’d wish all children could grow up in a small town with family and friends close by and kids would learn how to work and love their neighbors. Family is one of the greatest blessings we have on this earth and I wish all kids could experience that. I believe that would help a lot of children these days.
