ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A new city commissioner has been selected in St. Augustine tonight.
Commissioner Bill Leary resigned recently, saying he would step down Feb. 18. Tonight was his final meeting. He says he wants to spend more time with his family and he is moving away.
The commission considered a handful of replacements before selecting former city commissioner Don Crichlow. He will take the seat at the next meeting.
Several commissioners wanted to fill the position with someone who won't run for the seat in 2014 because they would become an incumbent and commissioners want the voters to make that decision.
