County Judge Mike Pfeifer has lived and worked in Calhoun County nearly all his life. He graduated from Calhoun High School and attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Lynn Jennings for 37 years, and they are blessed with three children, two son-in-laws and three grandchildren.
Mike’s knowledge of the community is built upon his experiences as a self-employed farmer/rancher and a small business owner. In the early 2000s, Mike became formally involved in county business by serving on the County Jail Feasibility Committee. He was elected Calhoun County Judge in 2002, and is proud to be serving his second term.
Some of Mike’s proudest accomplishments since becoming involved on the Commissioner’s Court include the completion of a new Adult Detention Center and a Courthouse renovation. Projects in progress include the construction of a new EMS station and a second Courthouse Annex. Most recently, the Calhoun County Airport was recognized as the Most Improved Airport in the state. These major community improvement projects are the result of a dedicated Commissioner’s Court and staff, a supportive community and forward thinking constituents who have worked together to ensure that Calhoun County is moving in the right direction.
Mike is a member of many local organizations including the Economic Development Corporation, Juvenile Board, County Fair Association, 4-H, Ministerial Alliance and the Seadrift Methodist Church. In his spare time, he enjoys wildlife photography, ranching, and sitting around the dinner table with his wife, children and grandchildren, discussing current events and telling great tales.
