Shawnee County Commission Elects New Chair

By  | 

The Shawnee County Commission has a new chair person.

Bob Archer was elected by his colleagues to take over the role from Shelly Buhler.

They then elected Kevin Cook to take the vice-chair seat.

As archer took the helm, he told the story of an email he got from the county counselor when he first joined the commission.

"It said, 'You messed up'. And it said, 'In the future when you mess up, would you like for me to tell you or not?" and I wrote back and I said, 'Yes I would like for you to tell me because I need all the help I can get," said Archer.

He then assigned himself, Cook and Huhler to serve on several boards around the area.
