ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Incumbent Eddy Shelton gets to keep his seat for Ector County Commissioner for Precinct 1.

Shelton won over Milton "Coach" Thompson, with 58 percent of the votes. 

Shelton said he is relieved the campaigning is over and now the real work can start. 

Shelton said priorities for his four-year term include water, roads and illegal dumping but first the funds have to be appropriated. 

Precinct 1 covers north and west Odessa, the fastest growing part of Ector County. 

Shelton said the position has nearly a $60 million budget and manages about 600 employees.
