Cleveland County commissioner says he won’t file for third term



“I really did try to do the right thing,” he said.

“This has been a trying time for me and my family. I love public service and this county, but hate the politics that comes with it,” he said. “Serving as your county commissioner has been one of the highest honors in my life. I wish nothing but the best for this great county and for my successor as county commissioner.”

At least two Republican candidates are expected to file for the post. They include Darryl Covey, of Lexington, and state Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City. Former state Sen. Cal Hobson, D-Lexington, has announced plans to file for the seat.
