Alex Floyd has qualified for the Bryan County Board of Commissioners District 1 seat. The position is currently held by three-term Commissioner Noah Covington who is not seeking re-election. 

His tag line “I’m North Bryan and I’m not going anywhere” references his 7th generation Bryan County citizenship and a career of local service. Floyd has served as Downtown Development Authority Director and City Administrator of Pembroke, Special Projects Coordinator and Building Inspector in Richmond Hill and currently Construction Inspector for Enviroworx Operations Management (EOM). He is married to Kristen Floyd and father of Ellis Floyd, 5, and Lanier Floyd, 3. The family attends Pembroke Christian Church and Compassion Christian Church, Henderson Campus.

The family has a tradition of service. Alex’s grandfather Colen Floyd served as District 1 Commissioner and his father Bob Floyd ran for the same seat. Bob currently serves as Vice President of the Board of Directors for Canoochee EMC. Alex’s grandmother Rose Mock has enjoyed a career in both Bryan County Public Health and currently in Community Supervision. Alex’s grandfather Tommy Flanigan served as a City Councilman in nearby Claxton. Alex is serving his third term on the Bryan County Planning and Zoning Commission and has served on city and county Comprehensive Plan and 2020 Census committees. 

Floyd promises to place “People First” when making decisions regarding roads, water, land use and development. “These issues are our business not Big Business’. Bryan County has pushed its long-standing citizens to the back of the line in the name of economic development and progress. Our homes, our safety and our livelihoods are not a bargaining chip for courting outside investment.”

Floyd acknowledges the growth and issues facing District 1. “I can’t stand when people, especially elected officials, use the term ‘controlled growth’. If I had a pet at my home and I wanted to ‘control growth’, I’d have two options: quit feeding it or kill it. Neither are an option for District 1. We must instead direct and harness the power of growth to provide first for those whose livelihoods are most affected.”

Floyd will be on the ballot of the May 21st Republican Primary and greatly appreciates the feedback and support he’s already received. “The community has been good to me and my family and I seek to earn their trust as their Commissioner''.
