King’s goal is to enhance the quality of life across Covington County through education and development, showcasing his unwavering commitment to the place he calls home.
“On multiple occasions, my friend, Steven King, has financially made it possible for me to travel with my radio show to his community in Covington County to highlight veteran efforts, the chamber, businesses, charities, events, the local community college, local celebrities, and public servants. Steven did this all on his dime because he cares about his community. If you want a man who is willing to go above and beyond for his community, I encourage you to support my friend, Steven King,” Mark White said.
