Tuesday night, the Coffee County Commission met, and on the agenda was the selection of a new District 1 commissioner. Benny Jones was serving in that seat when he passed away in October. Former commissioner Helen DeBellis, Benny Jones’ daughter Holly Jones and Benny’s wife, Dowe Jones had turned in papers to be considered for the commission seat. After a vote of 13-4, Holly Jones was chosen over DeBellis.
Also, Coffee County’s “Governor’s Volunteer Star Award recipient Staria Davidson was honored.
