EDNA - Dennis Karl, of LaWard, won the Republican nomination Tuesday for Jackson County commissioner, Precinct 4.
"I thank God for the many blessings and opportunities we enjoy in this country where free people can vote," he said.
Karl beat challengers Ray Brundrett and David "Brother" Frankson.
Karl thanked the voters, his wife and friends for trusting him to do the right thing.
Karl, 64, has worked with LaWard Telephone Co. for 45 years.
"My plan is to work with the current commissioners and the county judge to keep the tax rate as low as possible and to continue improving Jackson County to the best of my ability."
