He has represented District Three that includes the Springfield-Aberdeen area.
"I was appointed by Gov. C.L. 'Butch' Otter in February 2008 on the death of Commissioner Errol Covington," he said. "He was in the middle of a four-year term. I completed that term and was then elected to a two-year term, four-year term and two-year term."
Carter said, "I have appreciated getting to know the staff in the county and the elected officials. I have enjoyed being able to help people with their tax problems. I've enjoyed the public service. I'll miss the people with whom I work. My successor, Jessica Lewis, is going to be good."
