EDNA - Johnny E. Belicek was re-elected Jackson County Precinct 3 commissioner on Tuesday night.
The Republican incumbent beat his Democratic opponent Bowen J. Malek with a more than 2-to-1 margin.
"I couldn't be feeling any better. It's been a long, long, hard year having to politic," Belicek said. "I'm ready to continue working for Precinct 3 and Jackson County."
Republicans swept the Jackson County elections in every contested race, including state and local races, such as the constable Precinct 2 race where Republican Cynthia Poulton beat Joel Hunt for the constable seat.
Belicek said he appreciates the voters for their support, and for turning out to the polls in his favor.
"I want to thank everyone for their support, for letting me put signs in their yards and everything that a lot of people did for me in this county. I really appreciate it," he said. "I'm ready to continue working and listening to the people of this county and doing the best I can."
The incumbent also thanked Malek for "running a clean race."
"Good luck in your future," he said.
Belicek said he's ready to begin a new four-year term and requests that his constituents contact him with any questions or concerns.
"I look at this as an evaluation that you either have a job, or you're terminated. And it looks like I had a pretty decent evaluation," Belicek said.
