Governor Robert Bentley reiterated this week he will, if necessary, appoint the winner of a Houston County Commission race if there are legal issues with the election process.
Four candidates are seeking to fill the unexpired term of Phil Forrester. They include John Gormley, Melinda McClendon, Nathan Mathis, and Susan Wilkins. Forrester died in March after an illness of several months. He had represented District 4 since 1997 when he was appointed by then-governor Fob James.
