David Lee promises to bring a fresh perspective to the Allen County Commission if hes chosen by his fellow Republicans at a meeting of GOP precinct committee members Tuesday.
Lee is one of three announced candidates seeking to fill the unexpired term of Tom Williams, who is resigning from the Commission next week to take a job with the Kansas attorney generals office. The others are Iola City Councilman Ron Ballard and Bill King, retired public works director for the county. (Ballards and Kings comments were in Thursdays Register.)
Lee, who serves on the La-Harpe City Council and Bowlus Fine Arts Center Commission, said his initial plan was to run for the County Commission in 2020, to give him time to fulfill his commitments to the other governing bodies. The vacancy pushed up his timetable.
