|Info||Williams, 43, of Concord, is unknown in Delaware County politics, but he brings a sterling resume to the race. |
During the first Gulf War, he was an F/A-18 weapons sensors officer - think "Goose" in the movie "Top Gun" - with the Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121. He received two Air Medals for individual acts of valor and five Air Medals for 56 combat missions, according to his resume.
Williams graduated first in his class from Naval Justice School in Rhode Island and has law degrees from Columbia University and the University of Florida. In recent years, he has served as a legal adviser to two former chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Peter Pace and Gen. Richard Myers.
Under U.S. Attorney Pat Meehan, Williams worked in the criminal division, the corruption section and on the joint terrorism task force. He previously served as an assistant U.S. attorney in Colorado and clerked for J.L. Edmondson, chief judge of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.
