Briggs, Hammond Switch Races

They both flirted with running for county mayor, but Mike Hammond and Rick Briggs appear to be running instead for County Commission. They both reside in the current 5th District, and the number of commissioners is being reduced.

It’s likely that Briggs will run for the 5th District seat and that Hammond will run for one of the countywide at-large seats.

Briggs decided he didn’t want to give up his medical practice for the full-time mayoral post.
