Lincoln County Commissioner Doug Hunt announced that after decades of bank finance and public service as a county commissioner he’s hangin’ it up. He’ll serve as a county commissioner until the last day of 2022. After that he’ll be off to other new adventures, no doubt.
Commissioner Hunt was college educated, married his wife Patsy and had three children who are today grown ups with children of their own. After Commissioner Hunt bids the two remaining commissioners good-bye, his seat will be filled by one of five local citizens who have indicated they want to take over Commissioner Hunt’s chair – that election primary occurring May 17th. The two surviving candidates will then battle it out in the November election.
Commissioner Kaety Jacobson thus far doesn’t appear to have a challenger for her commission seat. Commissioner Claire Hall commended Commissioner Hunt for his hard work and contributions to the county.
