New Commissioner Named In Smith County

A new commissioner was named Friday to the Smith County Court. David Stein was announced as the Precinct 2 Commissioner.
Stein replaced former commissioner Don Pinkerton who died of a heart attack earlier this month. Judge Becky Dempsey selected Stein after he approached her with an interest in the position.
The 47-year-old is a local businessman and Christian radio personality.
Stein said he just wants to help where he is needed.
"I care about people, I just do," Stein said, "and I want to make sure that we do the right thing, not you know, it's easy to say by the taxpayers. Everyones affected by the decisions we make."
David Stein has not held public office before. He said he does intend to run for the commissioners position after the current term expires in 2006.
He will be sworn in to office on Monday, May 9th.
