Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Angelina County has a new county commissioner.

Steve Allen has been selected as the new Precinct 1 commissioner after the seat was vacated by Rick Harrison who recently passed away.

County Judge Wes Suiter says 21 people picked up applications, nine candidates applied for the position, only five were interviewed.

Suiter says he would have been honored and proud to work with any of candidates but Allen's 30 year background with TxDOT really stood out.

Allen said, "Well I had 30 years at TxDOT and when the job come open I seen the opportunity to go back to work and it's something that I've done for the last 30 years so I thought I'd enjoy it so I'm pretty excited about going out there seeing if I can help the tax payers and precinct 1."

Allen says he worked with the former Precinct 1commissioner, Rick Harrision on multiple occasions and he is just looking forward to picking up where Harrision left off.

Allen will be officially sworn in and begin his duties on April 1, 2013.
