Blake Kiger filing for county commissioner | Elections

The following is a filing statement from Blake Kiger seeking re-election to the Cabarrus County Commission:

For the past 5 years, I have had the privilege of serving the residents of Cabarrus County as one of your County Commissioners. Today, I am announcing my intention to represent myself in 2022 and I ask for your vote and your support.

On December 28, 2016, the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners appointed me to fill the position vacated by Grace Mynatt. My years of service to our community as chairman of the Cabarrus County School Board and other local councils was one of the many reasons I was selected for this position. In November

2018, I was elected by the residents of Cabarrus County to continue in this role. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve this community.

During this time, Cabarrus County flourished where many communities struggled. This success is due to the hard work and dedication of our current Board of Directors and staff. We have had to make many difficult decisions on how to stay financially responsible, maintain public safety, and protect the well-being of all of our residents.

Before the pandemic, the plans put in place by the current board of directors helped support our community and prepare us for what we could never have foreseen. Our staff and other board members worked quickly with our emergency staff, Atrium Cabarrus, Cabarrus Health Alliance, social services and the community. We are a stronger community today, thanks to the work we have put in place in previous years.
