Montgomery county commission vice-chair wants top job

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Now that Montgomery County Commission chairman Todd Strange is the incoming mayor of Montgomery, somebody will have to take his place as chairman.

Commissioner Elton Dean says it's likely he'll become chairman since he now serves as the vice-chair of the county commission.

Dean says he wants the job. "I've enjoyed working with now mayor Strange and would like to see us continue to work together."

Governor Bob Riley has not appointed anyone to take Strange's place as one of five commissioners.
