Voters Elect Republican Candidate For Wichita County Pct. 2 Commissioner's Seat
The March Primary runoff election is over and a republican candidate in the Wichita County Precinct 2 Commissioner's race has been elected.
Bill Lockwood, a pastor and a teacher, faced off against Wichita County native Lee Harvey.
With 100% of the precincts reporting, Harvey won the runoff election with 57% of the vote.
Harvey says, "It took a lot of people to get the turnout that we did today. The result that we did today. There's no way that any one person could have done that, so I'm just so grateful that the people believe in me. I appreciate that."
Also, Lockwood called Harvey a great candidate for the precinct 2 commissioner's seat.
"I'm happy for Lee," Lockwood says, "I'm happy for his family and his team. He's had a team that's really supported him and worked hard as well and I know that lee intends to do the greatest for this community and for this county and I know that he will do that."
The seat is being vacated by long time Wichita County Commissioner Pat Norriss.
Harvey will now face Democrat Tom Bursey in November.
