Carter County Commissioner for District 3, Jerry Alvord, will serve another term.
Alvord won his race against Democrat candidate Jon C. Pass, garnering 78 percent of the vote.
“With an election, you never really know what’s going to happen until it’s all said and done,” Alvord said. “Now, we’re planning on spending the evening with friends and family.”
Alvord, who held his watch party at Mill Street Garage on Tuesday night, said his main focus is the county’s roads.

“We need to keep maintenance to a certain level of satisfaction so the constituents have comfort with their roads,” Alvord said.

The county commissioner’s office moved to a new location, taking over the former Noble Energy building in downtown Ardmore. Alvord said while that process is complete, county offices still have some renovations ahead of them. Other county offices will eventually move out of the Carter County Courthouse, which will receive security upgrades, and into office space that originally housed the county commissioners.

“That’s something the citizens can expect to be completed,” Alvord said. “The Carter County offices have continued to grow. We were blessed when we were able to repurpose the Noble building, but we still have the big process in the courthouse.”
