The Fallout From The County Commission Chairman Selection

Commissioner Tony Norman may have generated himself an opponent due to his inability to support Craig Leuthold for County Commission Chairman. Sources indicate some third district residents are encouraging former County Commissioner Frank Leuthold to consider challenging Norman next year.

The inability of the members of the Republican Party to stick together is what keeps the Democrats in gaining additional seats and maintaining the leadership of the Commission, City Council and School Board.

Republican Party Chairman Ray Jenkins and Former Republican Party Chairman Gerald Turner did a great job of encouraging Republican unity among the Republican Commissioners. Unfortunately, the Republican Commissioners are not convinced the party can punish them or help them.
