Harvey County's three commissioners are dedicated to the entire county, but they are elected to represent one of three districts. District 1 includes Walton and parts of Newton. District 2 includes North Newton and parts of Newton. District 3 covers much of western Harvey County, including Burrton, Halstead, Hesston and Sedgwick.

Each commission seat is held for four years. The District 1 term was elected in 2018. Districts 2 and 3 will be up for election in 2020.

Commissioners fill several roles. During commission meetings, they guide county policies, hear feedback from the public, make annual budget decisions and more. Commissioners are also responsible for appointing members of citizen advisory boards, such as the Council on Aging, Parks Advisory Board and more. Advisory boards are crucial in aiding commission policy and decision making.

Commissioners are involved in several boards themselves. You can find out more about each commissioner's roles below.
