|R. Larry Smith|
The announcement will come at 10 a.m. at the 640 North Building.
There's a lot of county offices that will be up in 2018 - mayor, sheriff, clerk, register of deeds, etc. - but I'm guessing he will seek an at-large commission seat.
Right now Bob Thomas and Ed Brantley hold the two at-large seats. But, Bob is running for county mayor and I'm hearing that Ed has no interest in seeking re-election. Further, word going around is that if Bob does win the mayoral post then Ed would be his chief-of-staff.
That would leave the two seats open.
Of course, I suppose R. Larry could run for mayor.
