Pike County Times Voter Information Page: District 3 County Commissioner

ZEBULON - Three candidates qualified to run for the County Commissioner District 3 seat on the Republican ballot: Todd Child (Challenger), Ken Pullin (Challenger), and Doyle Jason Proctor (Incumbent). Candidates are listed in the order that they qualified for office.

Pike County Times contacted each candidate and requested the following: "Please send a 500 word or less statement about why you're running for office and why you're the best candidate to editor@pikecountytimes.com so I can print it on an election information page. Please include your contact information, website, etc. [Note from the Editor: PLEASE NOTE: I will not be printing anything that says anything about your opponents. This is strictly why you are the best candidate for whatever office you're running for.]"

Two of the three candidates replied to this request for voter information prior to the primary. The third candidate is welcome to send in his information at any time to be included on this election information page.

Results of the May Election

Incumbent Jason Proctor received 381 votes for 39.04% of the total amount of ballots cast, and Challenger Ken Pullin received 382 votes for 39.14% of the total amount of ballots cast in the Republican Primary on May 21, 2024.

There will be a Runoff on Tuesday, June 18 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with Early Voting taking place from June 10 to June 14.

The winner of the General Primary will either go into or remain in office on January 1, 2025 since there is no Democratic challenger in this race.

Doyle Jason Proctor (Incumbent)

Commissioner Jason Proctor is still welcome to send in his information at any time to be included on this election information page.

Ken Pullin (Challenger)

Former Republican State Representative Ken Pullin announces his plan to run for County Commissioner for District 3 in Pike County.

While serving in the Georgia House of Representatives, Representative Pullin was ranked one of the most conservative members of the House in both 2019 and 2020. He co-sponsored the following legislation: Constitutional Carry, the Heartbeat Bill, a bill for banning sanctuary cities in Georgia, 8 year term limits for both House and Senate members, and legislation to urge all school districts in Georgia to have an EMT present at full-contact sporting events. Representative Pullin also worked closely with Pike County government agencies to pass multiple local legislation bills.

“I’ve always thought the most important elected position in Government is our locally elected officials. I plan on working closely with our citizens and county commissioners to ensure Pike County spends every single taxpayer dollar in the most prudent and conservative way. As a county, we have many opportunities and challenges ahead of us and it’s critical for us to work together to meet both. I will work to ensure our county remains a great place to live and raise a family. I also believe strongly in open and transparent government, constituent services, honest communication, and that every single phone call and email should be answered."

Ken and his wife Shelby have two children, Luke and Libby. The Pullins are members of Rock Springs Church.

Ken can be reached at kenwpullin@gmail.com.
