First district commissioner Harold Rozier Jr. will run for re-election.

Rozier announced Friday he will seek a third term on the county commission.

“I want to be able to contribute to helping our county and I think I can. I have been praying about it and I have been talking with constituents and they have encouraged me to run again,” said Rozier.

Rozier has been committed to fiscal restraint throughout his time on the board.

Rozier is a retired forester with Union Camp. Prior to entering politics, he served on the Pierce County Board of Elections and Registration, including a stint as chairman.

A native of Liberty County, Rozier served in Vietnam and later earned a bachelor of science degree in forestry from the University of Georgia.

He and his wife, Mary, a Pierce County native, returned to the area in 2001. The Roziers have a daughter and son-in-law, Virginia and Trey Tison.

Though retired, Rozier maintains his business, Rozier Forestry Service. He is a member of First Baptist Church and the Blackshear Rotary Club.
