A former Savannah deputy police chief has thrown his hat into the political ring. Retired major Bill Lyght announced his candidacy for Chatham County Commission, District 4. He hopes to promote smart growth for the islands, increase public safety, and increase the homestead exemption by $3,000.
Lyght also promises to run a clean campaign. "We're going to go door to door and we're going to encourage everybody to get out and vote, and hopefully, they'll vote for me," he said.
The District 4 seat is being vacated by Frank Murray, who is running for county commission chairman.
