Both Bay County Commissioners Bill Dozier of district three and Mike Thomas of district five have served on the commission for two terms.
Bill Dozier's supporters met at the Hilton Garden Inn on 23rd St. and Highway 231 tonight to watch the election returns.
Mike Thomas waited for results at his oyster bar on the west end of the beaches.
Both commissioners said that the county is showing signs of growth and that helping create and bring more jobs to the area is their number one priority.
“The number one thing we've got to do is create jobs,” said Thomas. “While we don't create them, we have to set the atmosphere for it.”
Both Dozier and Thomas said they look forward to serving the people of Bay County for a third term.
