Anderson County Commissioner Myron Iwanski (Dist. 8), from Oak Ridge, was appointed by the Anderson County Board of Commissioners at the commission meeting on Monday to serve as interim county trustee to fill the vacancy left by Rodney Archer, who was offered the position in April by the state to serve as Executive Director of The County Officials Association of Tennessee (C.O.A.T.).
Archer announced his decision to accept the offer in May, after 11 years of serving in his current position, and will resign from his elected office as trustee on June 30 to take over his new job as COAT Executive Director.
Anderson County Commission held a special election during the commission meeting on Monday to appoint an interim trustee fill the vacancy until Archer’s term of office expires in 2018, at which time another county general election will be held.
Five candidates applied for the position: Wanda McCrosky, Myron Iwanski, Regina Copeland, Angie Knauff, and Scott Gillenwaters.
Archer, who was present at the commission meeting Monday, urged commissioners to consider voting for Angie Knauff to replace him. Knauff is an employee in the Trustee’s office. Now that commission has chosen Iwanski to replace Archer, the next order of business from commission will be to appoint someone to fill the vacancy left by Iwanski on commission. Iwanski is Oak Ridge commission representative for the 8th district.
Commission will appoint someone to replace Iwanski.
