Sigler to seek county post
CENTREVILLE — Council of Governments President George “Smokey” Sigler announced his intention to run for the District 2 county commission seat at the organization’s Wednesday, April 12, meeting at the Department of Natural Resources building in Queen Anne, his last meeting as Centreville representative.
Sigler, who lost his bid for re-election by two votes in Centreville’s April 3 town council election, had held the seat for the past six years. He was both president of the town council and its representative to the Council of Governments.
“We need somebody on the county commissioners from District 2 who is going to be looking out for all the citizens in District 2, not just the R’s, not just the D’s, not just the I’s, but all the we’s,” Sigler said. “By unified front is the only way we’re going to be able to move forward and do the things in conjunction with the county commissioners that need to be done
for all the municipalities.”
The current District 2 County Commissioner is Steve Wilson, current commission president. All of the commissioners’ four-year terms will expire in December 2018.
Sigler thanked his fellow Council of Government members for the work they had completed and said he enjoyed the topics and time spent together.
Moving forward, Sigler said, the Council of Governments is going to be the “pulse of the north county and the middle of the county” on the best way for each municipality to continue moving forward.
“I just want to thank you all for your support, your consideration, your help, your guidance and your understanding,” Sigler said. “I will miss you guys.”
