Durham commissioners vote 3-2 to keep Page, Reckhow at helm

This time, it took less than 10 minutes.

After a three-hour stalemate last week, Durham's county commissioners continued their election for the board's chair and vice chair positions at the beginning of their meeting Monday night.

In a quick vote, commissioners Michael Page, Ellen Reckhow and Becky Heron voted as a majority to keep Page as the board's chairman and Reckhow as the board's vice chair.

Commissioners Joe Bowser and Brenda Howerton paired their votes in an attempt to get Bowser into the chairmanship and Howerton named as vice chair. But their two votes were not enough.

Last week, Page was out of town on vacation and the board couldn't move past a two-two tie. Howerton and Bowser were hoping to elect Howerton as the board's vice chair, and Reckhow and Heron were trying to push the matter to the Dec. 13 meeting, when all five board members would be present.
