Bruce Carter has been named as Pierce County’s new road superintendent.

County Manager Jason Rubenbauer announced at the Jan. 4 commission meeting that Carter will be formally introduced at next month’s meeting.

Carter is a native of Brantley County, but has lived in Pierce County for the past 12 years.

He formerly worked for the Georgia Department of Corrections and has extensive certifications in construction and engineering.

He and his wife Ginnie have two children.

He also previously served in the Georgia National Guard and has worked for the International Union of Operating Engineers and is a former employee as a Soil Conservation Technician with the local NRCS office.

Carter takes over for Billy Flynn, who resigned last month after two years in the position to spend more time with his family.
