Chatham County commissioner John McMasters plans to run for reelection this year. Today, he met with dozens of supporters at his home where he made the announcement. He talked about several improvements he would like to see, including a stronger focus on the newly merged Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.
"We're already seeing more police officers on the street," he said. "We'll see more every year as the merger goes forward, so that has to be managed. We have to reduce crime. So that's something I think whoever does this, we need to pay attention to."
Chatham County Commission elections take place next November.
