Anders will seek commission post
Retired Clinton fire chief Wade Anders announced Monday that he will seek the Republican nomination for the District 1 county commission seat which James Covey said Friday he plans to vacate at the end of 2014.
A 15-year former member of the Clinton Board of Education, Anders ran unsuccessfully for the commissioner’s seat in 2009 when Covey won a special election to replace the late J.M. Kelley. He lost to Covey in the Democratic primary that year but said he will seek the Republican nomination this time.
