SHALIMAR —  Incumbent Wayne Harris will face challenger Ron Connor on Nov. 6 in the race for the District 1 seat on the Okaloosa County Commission.

Harris, a Republican, was elected in 2008. Connor, a Democrat, lost to Harris that year.

Harris, executive director of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce, said he wants more time on the board to reach some of his goals.

"There are some things I wanted to do, but I haven’t completed them yet, and I want to see them through," he said.

Among his top priorities are paving Okaloosa Lane and more of the dirt roads in the north county.

"I’ve got one ultimate goal, and that’s to get the road into Bob Sikes Airport to open that whole industrial park," Harris said. "I want to see that done in the next four years."

Connor, a former Navy commander, said he’s running for the seat because he hasn’t been pleased with Harris’ performance.
