Candidates Make Plans for Supervisors Races

Former Lauderdale County supervisor, Eddie Harper qualified Tuesday to seek the office this year.

Harper decided not to run for re-election in District 1 four years ago, and Hank Florey won the seat.

Florey is also running again. Both men are Republicans.

Other supervisors made plain their intentions at Tuesday's board meeting.

With the exception of District 3's Craig Hitt, all said they have or will qualify to run for another term.

"I will have an announcement within the next two weeks as to my plans for 2011," said Hitt.

Hitt was first elected in 1997.

At least two others have already qualified to seek the District 3 supervisor's post, Jerry Shields, who ran in 2007, and Josh Todd, whose father, Dwayne Todd, previously served as District 3 supervisor.

Tuesday, Hitt was elected president of the Lauderdale County board of supervisors, and Joe Norwood, vice-president, for 2011.
