Carroll announces bid for 8th District commission seat10:00 am | October 24, 2013
Robert Carroll has announced his intent to seek one of three 8th-district Carter County Commission positions in next year’s general election.
Carroll was in management and worked as a construction professional.
He also owned a heating, plumbing and air business in Rockhill, S.C., for about 15 years.
Carroll said he retired in 2009 and moved back home.
“I was born and raised in Carter County,” he said.
Upon his return, he said he was disappointed to find county government in disarray.
“When I moved back, I took a look at what was going on in county government,” Carroll said. “It needs to be fixed. I believe, personally, it can be fixed by people, like myself, who know and love Carter County and have roots in Carter County. I want what’s best for the county.”
