One of the first items on the agenda for the Cannon County Commission when it meets next month will be replacing a commissioner who has resigned.
5th District Commissioner Brad Hall, who has served on the commission since 2006, has resigned his position, effective Dec. 1.
"Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation as Commissioner for the 5th District of Cannon County," Hall wrote in a letter addressed to County Executive Mike Gannon.
"It is with regret that I must resign, but I am moving out of my district and can no longer serve as such. It has been an honor to have served Cannon County in this most important capacity," Hall said.
County Commissioners will likely appoint a replacement for Hall, who works as a deputy for the Cannon County Sheriff's Department, at its regular quarterly meeting on January 16, 2010.
The person selected to fill the vacancy will serve until Sept. 1, 2010. All county commission seats will be up for election next year. The date for the General Election is Aug. 5.
Nominations for the seat must be made by a current county commissioner. Any person nominated must reside within the 5th District and have been a resident of Cannon County for one year.
