The status-quo in Walton County is not working. It’s time for serious accountability and real problem-solving. When did excuses become acceptable?
—Kristi Stevenson, Walton County Commission Candidate (District 5)
As a local business owner, mother and public servant, I’m committed to the towns, coastal communities, natural resources and people across Walton County.
As a mom, employee and business owner, I know change brings new challenges. We need integrity, honesty, customer service and hard work from our local government to solve these problems.
We deserve the best—period. If elected, I will never settle for anything less.
I was born in Dallas but grew-up in Louisiana. My late father Christopher Schrang and Jeanne Carter adopted me when I was three days old.
Growing up in south Louisiana as a Southern Baptist, where gumbo mixed with politics and big business lessons, my mother taught me to work hard and respect everyone. My childhood centered around politics and real estate, and my mother fought hard to build a successful career in property management.
Hard work was always valued, but mom instilled a compass in me that informs every decision I make. Service, family and faith is the source of real fulfillment.
Today, I’m happily married to my husband John and we have three children— John (23), Catherine (15) and Savannah (14). Our family settled in Dune Allen more than 15 years ago.
From construction, development, marketing and sales, I’ve owned and operated several businesses in the area. Like many local residents, I’ve experienced the good times and the bad. I am a proud advocate for children with disabilities and a member of Village Baptist Church, in Destin.
