Burrus chosen as Hatteras Commisionner

The Executive Committee of the Dare County Democratic Party chose former Board of Education member Alan Burrus to succeed Joseph "Mac" Midgett on the Dare County Board of Commissioners. Midgett died in early January after being hospitalized for injuries sustained in a fall. Burrus served 3 terms on th Dare County Board of Education ending in 2002 (I think thats riight).
The meeting to pick the successor was held at the Dare County Justice Center on Roanoke Island. Representatives from all the precincts attended. The 3 announced candidates Burrus, Chris Hardee and Scott Legett gave brief statements. Committee members asked questions that focussed on beach nourishment (all 3 support) to services on Hatteras Isalnd and how best to bind the county together.
The vote was not close with Burrus getting a substantial majority on the first ballot.
