Wood currently serves on the Johnston County Heritage Commission, Public Library of Smithfield and Johnston County Board of Trustees, Johnston County Voluntary Agricultural District Advisory Board as a commissioner liaison and on a residential subdivision paving committee.

“Over the past four years, I have enjoyed serving the citizens of this county,” said Wood. “It’s been an extreme honor to get to know so many that take part in the success of the many communities that we call home.”

Wood said during his term he’s been able to play a part in Johnston County’s economic growth, reduce taxes and be an advocate for all county residents.

“Going forward, I hope to remain a representative of Johnston County and continue to contribute to its future success,” said Wood.
