After two intense campaigns – the initial effort to place the three Custer County Commissioners on the November ballot for a recall vote, and the second phase of campaigning by the potential successor candidates to replace the three Commissioners – the two new Commissioners, Tom Flower and Bill Canda, were sworn into office today by County Clerk, Kelley Camper. (The third Commissioner, Jay Printz, retained his office by a razor slim margin.)
The ceremony took place in the Custer County Court Room with a packed audience of recall supporters and interested citizens. Recalled Commissioner Bob Kattnig was present but the other recalled Commissioner, Donna Hood, was absent. Commissioner Printz opened the meeting with a short speech about working as a team going forward which was well received.
The Sentinel welcomes our two new Commissioners to the vibrant arena of Custer County politics, hopefully pointing towards a much more citizen aware new administration. God Bless America.
