Lee County Commission candidate announces

March 21, 2006

Leesburg --A Republican announces his candidacy for the Lee County Commission seat, representing the county's most densely populated district.

 Clayton Smith announced he will seek the Republican nomination for the Palmyra District. Smith made his announcement with his wife Jan and Lee County Republican Party Chairman Scott Beeley on the Lee County courthouse steps.

An attorney, Smith said he wants to provide good leadership in Lee County's "bright future." Smith said "My undergraduate degree was real estate and urban development and planning and things of that nature. And I just think I have some things I can bring to the table and help with this vision of the county."

Smith said that friends asked him to run, after Billy Mathis announced he would not seek re-election.

Smith is the first candidate to publicly announce he is running for the Palmyra District seat.
