Houston County voters voted Tuesday to keep a familiar face in office to represent District 3 for the next four years.
Incumbent Ricky Herring received 62% of the votes over Richard Talley for his second runoff victory in his political career.
“This is a great outcome, people in district 3 have spoken and I have another four years to go it looks like and it’s a lot to do,” Herring said.
As the incumbent, Herring said there has been much success during his first term like having over two million dollars of roads paved in district three.
“We just started this five million dollar infrastructure project down by the industrial plant that will bring in revenue, jobs, and boost the economy around here,” He said. “I’m also looking forward to working with our school system, small towns, as well as the EMS and public safety.”
Herring said he’s appreciative of the work by his campaign team for the past few months and the supporters for putting him back in into office for another four years.
Herring’s new term will begin in November since there is not a democratic candidate.
