Griggs To Run For Presiding Commissioner

Former Springfield City Councilman Conrad Griggs will run for Greene County Presiding Commissioner in 2010, the KY3 Political Notebook has learned.

Griggs is planning a formal announcement next Thursday at the Library Center on South Campbell at 2:30 p.m.

In 2007, Griggs lost his city council seat to Doug Burlison.

Griggs will seek the G.O.P. nomination. Republic State Rep. Jim Viebrock has also said he plans to run for the county's top seat, setting up a likely primary between the two Republicans. The ultimate victor will get a shot at current Presiding Commissioner Dave Coonrod, who is a Democrat. Coonrod was one of the runner-ups to head the Department of Natural Resources in Gov. Jay Nixon's administration.
