Local Incumbents Replaced in Republican Runoff Election

LIBERTY, May 28, 2014 - Election day was not a day that favored the incumbents for County Judge and Liberty County Commissioner Pct. 4. Both first term County Judge, Craig McNair and long time incumbent Commissioner Pct. 4 Norman Brown failed to convince voters to continue their service.

In a very close, countywide race for County Judge candidate Jay Knight prevailed by 35 votes and candidate Leon Wilson in Dayton won by 90 votes.

Candidate Jay Knight said of the outcome of the election, “I want to thank all the voters who got out and braved the weather today to caste their vote for the candidate of their choice and thank those voters who put their trust in me and voted for me and saw that I was fit to get the job done that they expect.” Knight went on to say, “My plan is to get all the employees and citizens of the county to work together and with the help of the good Lord, we can all work together to make Liberty County what we envision it could be.”

Candidate Leon Wilson in speaking of this victory tonight said, “I’m just going to take a couple of days to get my thoughts together. I do want to thank each and every individual who supported me to the bottom of my heart. I want to strive to do my best and make everyone proud of the job that I do, Precinct 4 and Liberty County. I have six months before I can take that rains but I want to get started on my platform and I want to meet with every commissioner.”

Wilson wants to get started on working to form a unit system for the maintenance of county roads and create a fire department budget in the county that would require state legislation funded by fines to support local fire departments.
