Susan Latvala tapped to be next Pinellas commission chair
Recently re-elected Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala was tapped by her colleagues to be the next chair of the seven-member board. The Republican was vice chair so the move was expected.
Commissioner John Morroni, also starting a new term, will be vice chairman.
And loquacious new Commissioner Norm Roche offered this about taking on duties Tuesday: "As rare as it is for me, I'm near speechless."
