Johnston County Commissioner Lee Jackson filed Wednesday for the upcoming 2018 election to complete the term vacated by Keith Branch. Commissioner Jackson was appointed to fill the seat in November 2017.

“I have filed for election to the Board of Commissioners because I would like to serve as a new leader for fiscal responsibility in our county. I’m dedicated to continuing to help our county grow and prosper. I humbly ask the voters to keep me in the position to which I was appointed,” said Commissioner Jackson.

“I believe my background as a Certified Public Accountant and Chartered Global Management Accountant gives me insight into the finances of our growing county and will help the Board of Commissioners continue to keep our tax rates low while we continue to build the schools and infrastructure that we need,” said Commissioner Jackson.

“As a lifelong resident of Johnston County, I would like to help our county continue the growth it has experienced in recent years. I want Johnston County to be a place that our children will want to call home, where they can raise a family, and where they can enjoy life as wonderful as I have enjoyed here. Keeping our county moving forward is my primary consideration,” said Commissioner Jackson.
