Houston County Commission Post 5
Welcome to the Mark Byrd for Houston County Commission website. I am humbled and honored to be the Republican candidate for Post 5 of the Houston County Commission. As a political newcomer, the most common question that I have been asked is “Why are you running for elected office?” The answer is pretty simple….Houston County is my home, and I care about the people that live here. That’s why I’m running for Houston County Commissioner!
With all the “noise” in the world today, it can be easy to lose sight of the positive things going on in our community. We have a stable local economy that is home to a world class military installation, Robins Air Force Base. In addition to RAFB, Houston County has enjoyed significant economic investment and job creation from existing industry, new industry, and the small business community over recent years.
Houston County is home to a high achieving public school system and multiple secondary educational opportunities that offer our citizens an opportunity for personal and professional advancement, and provide our community with an educated and skilled workforce. Our community also enjoys an affordable cost of living and a high quality of life, which makes Houston County a great place to raise a family.
I am extremely proud of our county and look forward to building on this foundation of success. I am confident that with your support, together, we can continue to shape the future of Houston County.
