The next four years will shape the way Bryan County will grow for 25 years to come, said Carter Infinger, who is running for the District 4 spot on the Bryan County Board of Commissioners because he wants to be part of that planning process.
“We have to grow, but we have to have positive growth,” he said. “We need jobs. People want to live here and work here.”
Infinger’s job as a pharmaceutical representative brought him to Richmond Hill in 1997. He announced his candidacy for the District 4 seat in May. Although he is a registered Republican, he is running as an independent candidate.
Infinger said that he’s thought about running for a while and decided that now is the right time. His two daughters are older, and he said he has the time to commit to meetings and running government business. 
“I work full time, but I have a flexible schedule,” he said.
Besides ensuring controlled growth and sturdy infrastructure to support it, Infinger said that if elected, the commissioners should take a good look at the budget and make sure they are being fiscally responsible.
He also said he’d work with the Bryan County Development Authority to attract industry to area, which will bring more jobs to the community.
“Jobs that people can make a good living doing,” Infinger said.
Infinger said he’d also like to work with the Bryan County Board of Education to make sure children are getting state-of-the-art facilities to make them more competitive when they graduate. He’d also like to start a recycling program in Bryan County.
“We owe it to the environment to recycle, reduce and reuse,” he said.
Infinger said he has the corporate and managerial training that will be beneficial to running Bryan County government.
 “I think the county needs to be run like a corporation,” he said.
Infinger also said he’s the right man for the job since he has does not own a business in the community and is not a real estate agent.
“That’s important. We need to have someone with no business interest here to make decisions,” he said. “When I vote on things, it’s going to be for the benefit of the majority of the community.”
