Brown wins county chair on surprise unanimous vote

Putting aside some public sniping, the Fayette County Commission tonight unanimously reappointed Steve Brown as its chairman for the 2014 calendar year.

There had been a push to replace Brown as chairman with fellow commissioner Chuck Oddo, but it vaporized at the beginning of the meeting after Brown opened the meeting saying the commission would continue to work together this year despite their public disagreements about he chairmanship issue.

More details to come later tonight following the meeting.
