County Commissioner Announces Plans

County Commissioner Frank Sawyer announced Tuesday, he'll seek another term on the Smith County Commissioners Court. Sawyer is in his third year as the precinct three commissioner. He says a second term would be his last. Republican Bobby Van Ness is the only other person running for the seat. Sawyer and fellow commissioner Sharon Emmert made news this past year by giving up half their salaries to an incentive fund for county employees.
