MONTESANO — County Commissioner Frank Gordon was named chairman of the Grays Harbor Board of County Commissioners on Monday.
Gordon has been the acting chair since June, when Commissioner Herb Welch’s health was failing. But Welch, now back on the board, and fellow Commissioner Wes Cormier made it formal during their Nov. 25 commission meeting.
Gordon will be chairman at least through the end of 2014.
This is Gordon’s first year as a commissioner. Before that, he served on the Aberdeen City Council.
