Leesburg-  An embattled Lee County Commissioner says she hasn't decided whether to run for re-election.

Jo Ealum is concluding her first term in office and it hasn't been an easy one. She's been widely criticized for absences from meetings, there's even been a recall petition against her. Most recently, Ealum made the news over a court appearance for a confrontation with an ex- boyfriend.

Even so, the 24-year old says she's enjoyed her time in office and hasn't ruled out another run.

"The option is certainly open, but I love being a public servant," said Jo Ealum, Lee County Commissioner.

Betty Johnson has expressed interest in running for Ealum's seat along with Duane Miles on the Democratic ticket. Commissioners Morris Leverett and Wally Roberts are also both up for re-election. Bill Williams has said he'll run against Roberts.

Qualifying is from April 28th through May second.
