Steven G. Pierce has joined the race for Carter County Superintendent of Roads post in the Carter County General Election in August.
“I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for the position,” said Pierce, who ran for the same position in the last Carter County General Election.
Pierce was raised and currently lives in Stoney Creek. He is married to his high school sweetheart Genia Peters and has two daughters.
Although his family supports his venture, it’s Pierce’s 25 years of experience as a land surveyor and current position as Carter County Planning Committee chairman that has prepared him for the role he seeks, he said.
“I run my own business,” Pierce said. “I’m a registered land surveyor in Tennessee and North Carolina. As chairman of the planning commission, I assist people with their land use rights.”
Through his 7 years on the planning commission and 2 years as chairman of the committee, Pierce said he has a great relationship and understands how to effectively work with the Carter County Commission.
