Jenkins files for reelection as county commissioner

Cherokee County District 2 Commissioner Chris Jenkins filed for reelection in the upcoming 2024 election.

Jenkins, a Democrat, has 24 years of service to Cherokee County District 2 and has been involved in the community's growth and development.

He started out as a laborer in 2000 and spent 17 years operating a road grader to which he said he gained experience in maintaining the county's infrastructure.

Jenkins graduated from Hulbert High School and resides in town with his wife, Kacee, and three sons; Weston; Colton; and Jase. Jenkins said he is committed to the well-being of Hulbert and Cherokee County.

He was elected as commissioner for District 2 in 2020 and since that time, he's laid over 25 miles of asphalt, modernized his fleet equipment, and replaced five low-water bridges. Jenkins said his work isn't over as there are several upcoming projects including the ongoing paving of North Sunset Valley Road,

Jenkins added that he and his crew are maximizing resources to benefit District 2 through strategic grant acquisitions; the Lake Access grant that facilitated work to West 780 Road; and Eastern Oklahoma Development District grant that went toward remodeling work to the Lost City Community Building.
