Record Observer - - FRONT PAGE - By MIKE DAVIS mdavis@kibay­times.com

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.”
