The Walton County Board of County Commissioners (WCBCC) welcomed their newest member before starting their regular meeting on Monday, Sept. 11. Former State Representative Brad Drake was appointed to the Commission by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis following the resignation of former Commissioner Mike Barker, who took a job with the City of DeFuniak Springs.
On Monday, the Honorable Judge David Green administered the oath of office to Brad Drake, while Drake’s father, David Earl Drake, held the bible on which he took the oath. Immediately after the ceremony, Commissioner Brad Drake took his place behind the dais with his fellow commissioners and the meeting began. Later, near the close of the meeting, Commissioner Drake thanked everyone for the warm welcome and said he was grateful for the opportunity to again serve the people of Walton County.
