Two incumbent Henry County commissioners have secured their second term in office.

Henry County commissioner Dee Clemmons prevailed in the only contested primary among the three commission seats on this year’s ballot. Clemmons continues her quest for a second term after getting a majority vote against two Democrat challengers, avoiding a runoff. She will face Republican candidate Steve Richardson in November.

Fellow commissioner Johnny Wilson is unopposed in the primary as well as the general election and will also win a second term. Current commission chair June Wood, Republican, and Democrat challenger Carlotta Harrell were both unopposed in the primary.
