Hulbert resident Rick Lamons filed for the District 2 Cherokee County Commission seat in the upcoming 2024 election.

Lamons moved back to Cherokee County in 1993 and got back into the Ironworks Local 584, where he helped build cell phone towers.

In 2001, he joined the Operators Local 627 where he run heavy equipment and cranes. In 2005, he worked for Williams Construction and I operated bulldozers, excavators, and cranes.

Lamons said he took a position in office in 2014 as director of construction support and oversaw maintenance and repair of equipment, as well as the pickup and delivery of equipment and materials to job sites. As director of construction, Lamons supervised a fleet of 30 company vehicles.

Lamons worked for Williams Construction for 18.5 years before he retired in July 2023. He said he considered running for office a few years back. He added that he would be glad to sit down and visit with as many people who have questions for him.
