SNOW HILL, Md.- The Worcester County Commissioners on Tuesday re-elected Commissioner James C. "Bud" Church as commission president and Commissioner Merrill W. Lockfaw Jr. as vice president.

Church was elected county commissioner in 2002 to represent the newly-formed District Three. He has served as president since 2010. Prior to his election as president he served as vice president. Church is the broker owner of Coldwell Banker Bud Church Realty, Inc. in Ocean City. Prior to becoming a county commissioner, he served as a Worcester County Board of Education member for 10 years, serving eight years as president.

Church is on the Salisbury-Ocean City, Wicomico County Airport Commission and the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation Board of Directors. 

Lockfaw was elected as a county commissioner in 2010. He retired as the Worcester County Roads superintendent, after having served the county for 19 years. In addition, he was employed for 18 years as a plant operations manager and then general manager for an open pit mining operation in Pocomoke City. After serving four years in the U.S. Air Force, he began a management career with a leading poultry company on the Eastern Shore, while also managing his family farm and poultry operations.

Lockfaw has been active in the Pocomoke Fire Company for 39 years, having served as chief and holding other elected positions. He presently serves as a deacon at Lynnhaven Baptist Church. Lockfaw and his wife, Sarah, live on their farm outside of Pocomoke City.

The Worcester County Commissioners meet the first and third Tuesday of each month in the Worcester County Government Center in Snow Hill.
