Chester County Mayor Barry Hutcherson returned to serve as Commission Chairman following a short nomination period. Commissioner Jerry King nominated Hutcherson with Carolyn Higgins seconding. Dwight Bingham nominated Commissioner Barry Smith, however Smith declined the nomination, citing recent events within his family which will cause him to be unable to fulfill the duties of chairman in the coming months. Commissioner Jerry Lowe nominated Dwight Bingham, but with no second, the nomination failed. The lone nominee, Hutcherson was named Chair. In the election of Chairman Pro Tem, current Chair Pro Tem Tim Crowe nominated Renee Phelps, with Brenda Matthews seconding, and Carolyn Higgins nominated Anne Moore, with Jerry Emerson seconding. After three roll call votes, there was no majority, and the commission voted to table the vote until the next meeting. Until the point that a successor is elected, Crowe continues as Pro Tem. To note, the first vote was 8-7, with Commissioners Jerry Lowe, Barry Smith, Tim Crowe, Brenda Matthews, Todd Lewis and Ricky Hardy voting for Renee Phelps, and Moore and Phelps abstaining. However, a successful vote is required to be a majority of 10 votes. In the second vote, Moore chose to include her own vote for herself.
