Tucker preparing papersAbilene, Jan. 2 - Merkel businessman Jerry Dwayne Tucker, 40 (shown at right preparing candidacy papers), announced filed his papers to run for Commissioner of Precinct 2 in Taylor County, having collecting petition signatures from over 100 voters.  Tucker will challenge incumbent Nowlin "Corky" Cox in the March 2006 Democratic primary election.
Tucker is currently the owner/operator of Dwayne's Dozer Service, a successful dirt construction business since 1994.  An active civic leader, Dwayne has served on the boards of commissioners for both the Blair Water Supply and Merkel Housing Authority. 
Tucker and his wife Cindy have one daughter, Ashley, who is a junior at Texas Tech University.
"I've lived in Merkel since I was 15 years old," Tucker said.  "My goal as County Commissioner is to continue to uphold the good job that the current employees are doing and keep a good working relationship with all those employees."
Taylor County Democratic Chair Dave Haigler said, "We're happy to attract such good candidates as Dwayne Tucker, our 4th candidate for this office.  While we're proud of the job that our incumbent Corky Cox has done, we expect a good race in our primary, and may the best man for precinct two win the primary." 
Haigler said he had a second candidate, Bob Hammond, to file for commissioner Thursday, and a third, Luther Webb, file Friday.
