JORDAN DAVIS – no photo provided

My name is Jordan Davis, and I am running as a candidate for County Commissioner in Tyrrell County.  I am 31 years old and was born and raised on my family’s farm here in Tyrell County where I now work and reside.  I attended UNC Wilmington where I obtained a BA in Political Science with a minor in Public Administration.  My wife Carlie and I are natives of Tyrrell & Washington counties and have lived in Eastern NC our entire lives.  Public service has been a part of my life since I was in high school.  From serving on the fire department in my early years, on church boards and our community HOA, to now chairing the Tyrrell-Dare Farm Service Agency Board and serving as Vice President on the Tyrrell County Farm Bureau Board, public service is a huge part of my life.  Serving as a local elected official has always been a goal of mine.  I feel that I have a lot to bring to the Board of Commissioners in Tyrrell County, and I would like to help my community in any way possible.  Several issues are affecting Tyrrell County currently; including preserving the current tax base, to drainage issues and flooding throughout the community. There is a lot to be done in the coming years to keep Tyrrell County the greatest county in the state. I would appreciate your support and look forward to serving you.  If I can be of any assistance, please let me know!




My name is Angie Etheridge Sexton and I am the Candidate for Tyrrell County Clerk of Superior Court.  I am 52 years old, a member of Sandy Acres Free Will Baptist Church, and a lifelong resident of Tyrrell County.

I started my employment as a Deputy Clerk on October 1st, 1987.  I was promoted to Assistant Clerk on October 1st, 2003 and was sworn in as the Elected Clerk on December 1st, 2010.  It has been my privilege and honor to serve the citizens of Tyrrell County for over 30 years.

Thank you for allowing my continued service to the job that I love in the county that is my home.
