About Derrick Gibson...



Gibson was raised by a Christian mother who taught all seven of her children the difference between right and wrong.

Born in NYC, but raised in Georgia, Gibson became well versed in everything that had to do with survival.  He learned how to fish, hunt, grow a garden and be a gentleman. In high school he became interested in the industrial arts and auto mechanics.  Gibson landed a scholarship to South Georgia Technology College in Americus Georgia where he graduated with a degree in automotive technology.  After graduation, he was employed in the automotive industry where he gained valuable knowledge and experience which he used to open his own auto transmission shops. Gibson also served in the State Guard in Georgia.

Gibson went to college and got his degree in criminal justice.  He has seen both sides of the justice system and agrees that it can be unfair, but he is determined to do something about it.

Growing up a black man in the south with a Christian upbringing and 6 siblings, his mother ran a tight ship. She brought her children up right.  This was the only way she knew.  He had a very spiritual childhood and attended church regularly.  His mother encouraged a strong adherence the concept of right and wrong and taught her children the meaning of the word ‘integrity’.

Life hasn’t always been easy for Gibson, but somehow, he always manages to see the bright side of everything.  He never gives up.  Today, he is a proud father who has brought his children up the same way that he was raised: the right way.

Gibson thinks that morals and values have a place in the world.  He does not believe that the decline of society is acceptable.  He believes in the upholding the Constitution of the United States.  And with that, he will tell you that he thinks that Political Correctness has been the start of the decline of America.

At the tender age of 18, Gibson became interested in politics.  He paid very close attention to what was going on politically and how these things were affecting his lifestyle.  He saw many things that did not align with his Christian upbringing and he decided then and there, that someday, when the time was right, he would run for office. That time is now!
