Hutchinson elected commission president

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Brenda J. Hutchinson became the first female Democrat to be elected president of the Morgan County Commission on Friday.

Newly elected Commissioner Stacy A. Dugan nominated Hutchinson for the post and Commissioner Thomas R. Swaim seconded the motion.

Before the meeting began, Hutchinson said she was excited about being elected president, "but I'm mindful of the responsibility of the commission. The voters were looking for change, and we have a new beginning."

Swaim said there's been an election -- Dugan defeated former commission president Glen R. Stotler in the November general election -- "but I'd like to see us put away all hard feelings and I want to work together."

Hutchinson said she and Dugan are two people who come from working backgrounds and want to work with everybody and do what is best for the county.


"I can't say strongly enough -- the election is over and we need to move forward," Hutchinson said.
