No Real Surprise on County Commission Chairman and Vice-Chairman Elections

Thomas "Tank" Strickland was elected County Commission Chairman unanimously. Commissioner Mark Harmon nominated Commissioner Mike Hammond. Commissioner Elaine Davis attempted to nominate Craig Leuthold. Leuthold declined in order to maintain his Finance Chairman position. Commissioner Greg "Lumpy" Lambert nominated R. Larry Smith. In a surprise move R. Larry declined. Commissioner Paul Pinkston nominated Mark Harmon who declined. County Commissioner Mike Hammond was elected Vice-Chairman.

The comments make you wonder how Smith and Harmon came to endorsement and support for Hammond in less than two minutes without any prior discussion?
