Hancock County GOP Picks Cade To Fill Remainder Of Engineer’s Term

12/11/18 – 11:15 A.M.

Doug Cade has shed the interim tag from his Hancock County Engineer title. Hancock County GOP Vice chairman Phil Riegle says the Republican Central Committee voted in favor of placing Cade in the role for the rest of Chris Longs term during a Monday night meeting.

The GOP had delayed a vote in late November due to bad weather.

The Hancock County Commissioners named Cade the interim county engineer after Long stepped down to deal with health issues.

The county engineer is an elected position, so Longs party gets to pick the permanent replacement to fill the rest of the term that ends in 2020.
