Archer Eyes Commission Seat

By Staff | Apr 11, 2018


Julia Archer, a Democrat from Kidwell, recently announced her bid for Tyler County Commission.

A lifetime resident of Tyler County and graduate of Tyler County High School, Archer believes she has the best interest of the citizens at heart.

She is the daughter of John and Joellen (Winland) Roberts. Her father served as Magistrate of Tyler County for 26 years, retiring in 2014. Her mother retired from Colin Anderson Center as a registered nurse.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Archer has a strong passion for serving the citizens of Tyler County. “My dad always had a passion for serving others, and instilled this in us at a young age,” said Archer. “We were also taught a strong work ethic both of these qualities will benefit me in serving the citizens of Tyler County.”

After graduation, Archer enlisted in the United States Army, where she was honorably discharged after completing her service. She later worked at Ace Hardware for several years, focusing on kitchen and bathroom design and sales. She left that position in 2008 to focus on managing the Roberts-Archer Beef Cattle Farm, making her the third generation to run the family-owned farm. This experience has garnered in her a strong sense of financial responsibility and the importance of balancing the budget.

Archer is a member of LaZear’s Chapel United Methodist Church where she serves in many different roles, including the Board of Trustees, Administrative Council and Finance Committee. She also is a member of the Tyler County Fair Board and previously served on the Tyler County Extension Service Committee.

As a Commissioner, Archer will focus on economic development in Tyler County. “This county has potential for growth that would benefit its citizens in many ways,” she said “Economic development would not only benefit the county, but also as its citizens by bringing jobs to the area.”

Archer will be diligent and motivated to make our county attractive for more businesses. “Serving the citizens of Tyler County would truly be an honor,” said Archer.
