Crist names Johnson to Parker's seat

-A A +A

New commissioner swearing in Tuesday

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

 

Owen Chad “Cracker” Johnson has been named to the Levy County Board of Commissioners District 1 seat, nine months after Gov. Charlie Crist suspended Tony Parker for being indicted on federal charges.

He will take the oath of office at the start of the commission's regular meeting at 9 a.n. Tuesday in the commission meeting room at the Levy County Courthouse on Court Street in Bronson. County Judge Joseph Smith will administer the oath.

It should be a lively event as Smith, known for being a Florida State University Seminole fan, will be swearing in the 1993 University of Florida graduate who saind in his first interview: "I have a nice orange tie that should go good with the blue suit I will wear."

Johnson, who works for a company that sells ID tags for cattle, said he was in Okechobee visiting a customer when he received word he would be appointed and the announcement would be made.

"I've got a lot of homework to do between now and Tuesday," Johnson said late Wednesday. He said he had a long list of congratulatory calls to return.
