Carolyn Ketchel re-elected to Okaloosa County Commission

by Margaret Willard

Okaloosa County Commissioner Carolyn Ketchel was re-elected to a third term.

The incumbent defeated opponents Matt Turpin and CareySue Beasley with 48% of the vote. Turpin received 36% of the vote and Beasley had 18%.

Ketchel will once again represent District 2, which covers Shalimar, Okaloosa Island and parts of Fort Walton Beach. She ran unopposed when she was re-elected to a second term four years ago.

The retired social worker’s platform focused on infrastructure, public safety, and the possible rolling back of Okaloosa’s millage rate.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve here in Okaloosa County,” she said.
