No change for city commission

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

There will be no challengers this year to seats held by several Chiefland city commissioners.
The terms of commissioners Rollin Hudson (Group 3), Frank Buie (Group 1) and Sammy Cason (Group 5)  were set to expire this year. All three commissioners got on board last week during the city's qualification period. And they were the only ones.
"Thank goodness," Cason said Monday afternoon about the lack of challengers.
He said he's not sure why nobody else, other than the three current commissioners, sought the position this year. But, according to Cason, it might have something to do with how smoothly the commissioners have been running the city.
Cason, who has been a city commissioner for a total of 22 years, said it's the people of Chiefland who keep bringing him back.
"I like people. I like working with people, and I try to help my community as best I can."
Cason said he's enthusiastic about working with the other commissioners and city staff over the next term, which will expire in 2013.
