Appointed in May 2022 to fill an unexpired term, Carder won the election in August 2022 and is serving his first term on the County Commission.

Work/Personal:  I am a teacher and farmer. I live in the Sulphur Springs community with my wife, Niki, and our two sons, Houston and Dailey. We enjoy a busy life of farming, as well as squeezing in adventures when time allows. We are active members of Sulphur Springs UMC.  I have a BS in Marketing, University of Tennessee, BS Logistics and Transportation, University of Tennessee and M.Ed. Milligan University.

Goals: We live in one of the most desirable areas in the world, which is evident with the new developments. My goal for this Commission is to help position Washington County to prosper during this exciting time, while holding on to traditions that created the stability and beauty of our area. The blending of rural and urban development will be a key factor for this commission to master.
