Friday Is Deadline to Enter Decatur Commission Race

If you want to run for the District 1 seat on the Decatur City Commission, the deadline to qualify is 4:30 p.m. Friday.

So far only Scott Drake has signed up. To run, you need to pay the $144 qualifying fee and submit paperwork to the city clerk's office. Qualifying started Wednesday.

The District 1 city commission seat has been vacant since Bill Floyd resigned Jan. 7. The commission is now operating with four members.

The election is scheduled for March 19. District 1 lies mostly to the north of College Avenue.
