Former ACC commissioner Charles Carter died on Thursday morning at the age of 91.
The Winterville native, a cattle farmer, represented District 1 in rural eastern Clarke County from unification in 1991 until his retirement in 2006.
“He was a man of few words, so when he spoke, everyone listened,” said Sharyn Dickerson, who worked for ACC when he was a commissioner and now represents District 1.
Carter is survived by his wife, Laura.
Viewings will be held from 5–7 p.m. today and 1–2 p.m. Saturday at Tuckston United Methodist Church. The funeral service will follow the second viewing.
