  1. I listened to Tom Albro on the radio talking about the open seat on the commission and decided to apply. I would be happy for the Commissioners to consider me for the open position. I submitted my application on 1/10/13 and again on 1/22/13 and I hope that someone has my application for consideration. Thanks for the chance to participate.
