Sherman Edwards


Sherman Edwards will become the next commissioner of precinct 3 after defeating Ben Clements in the Republican primary runoff on Tuesday.


Because there is no Democrat running for office, Edwards will replace longtime commissioner Joe Brown in November.

In the race for Erath County tax assessor, Valerie Stephen narrowly won the Republican primary runoff after receiving 19 more votes than her opponent Niki McInroe-Cogburn.


Stephen will face Democrat Marycruz Serrano in November.
