Stanley wins top spot on County Commission

The Flint Journal is reporting:
Woodrow Stanley was elected quickly this morning as the new chairman of the Genesee County Board of Commissioners.

Less than years after he was recalled as mayor of Flint, he easily moved into the top spot in county government.

"I'm humbled and honored," Stanley told commissioners. "This is an awesome opportunity and daunting challenge. It's simply my turn to carry the baton."

It's not unusual to maneuver through rounds of voting before a leader is elected to head the nine-member board. Stanley was elected on the first ballot.

Stanley, D-Flint, received five votes to best the three votes for former Chairman Archie Bailey, D-Flushing, and one vote cast for Clayton Township's Ted Henry.

Stanley takes the post immediately.
