Officials switch political party

January 8, 2004

 Lee County  --  County Commissioner Jackie Sizemore, Tax Commissioner Betty Johnson and Coroner Ronald Rowe, previously Democrats, are now Republicans.

They say their views are more in line with the GOP. "I think Lee County is moving towards the Republican party strong," says Sizemore.  "I think in order to get the help you need and be effiencent in what you do  you need to take that into consideration," he says.

 In the 2002 primary election sixty-percent of Lee County voters voted Republican. After today's switch four of the five Lee County Commissioners are Republican.
