Priorities as County Judge Executive

Serving as County Judge Executive of Boyle County is an honor and a massive responsibility. In this role, there are many things to juggle, but I believe the most important are representing the citizens I serve by actively working together, ensuring that the county provides and maintains solid infrastructure, and being a good steward of the county's resources.

Brigadier General Howard Hunt, USAF, Retired

for Boyle County Judge Executive

Howard & Aprile Hunt

Aprile, my wife of 42 years, and I live on our family farm near Atoka, where I grew up. We have one son, Price (who is married to Chelsea) and one daughter, Hanna (who is married to Bryant Baker) and we have been blessed with six grandchildren.

I grew up in Boyle County and it was a positive influence in my life. I want my grandchildren to have a childhood here in Boyle County that is at least as good as I enjoyed, preferably better.

I have had the desire to serve for my entire adult life. I adhere to The US Air Force Core Values: Integrity First, Excellence in All I Do, and Service Before Self.

After a rewarding career serving my nation and my state, I want to continue to serve here at home in Boyle County as your County Judge Executive.
