Due to a change of address, Jack Barton has turned in his resignation as Second District county commissioner and annouced his candidacy for commissioner in the Third District.In a letter presented to County Mayor Mike Foster last week, the long-time commissioner said: “I am writing to inform you that I will be resigning from my office and responsibilities as County Commissioner of the second district, effective January 28, 2014. I will be moving out of my district and as such cannot continue in my elected capacity as commissioner.I first took office in August 2006 and have been serving the people of the second district since then. I have enjoyed greatly the time I have given to this very important role in our county government and regret that I cannot fulfill this second term I was elected to.I wish only the best for this governmental body and its role in overseeing the county.
