J.D. Collins is the father of four, a U.S. Navy veteran, a former City of Macon sergeant and currently chief investigator for the Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s office. In the announcement for his candidacy, Collins said he knows that investing in schools is the single biggest determining factor in their future success.
“As someone who has had the honor of serving my country in the Navy, and the honor of serving my community by being a peace officer, as someone who loves this community enough to relocate here and for my wife and I to raise our child here, I’ve seen firsthand that every challenge we face – every victory we score – starts in our kids’ schools,” he said.
Collins said he is a product of a public school system and so are his children.
“I believe in our schools. And I can’t stand by and not invest directly in helping them be the best they can be. I’m honored to throw my knowledge, skill sets, and voice as a parent of a child currently enrolled, for this incredibly important position.”
He said he currently serves as the chief investigator for the Macon Judicial Circuit, where he oversees a three-county area. He is also the lead trainer and consultant for Niko’s Training and Consulting Firm.
