New Brooksville council member's name pulled from hat

BROOKSVILLE — Unable to decide on a candidate to fill a vacant council seat, the four sitting Brooksville City Council members left it up to chance Monday night. Of the two names tossed into a hat, that of Kevin Hohn, 56, a public records product specialist and former employee of the Internal Revenue Service criminal investigation division, was selected. Hohn will temporarily fill the seat left vacant by Emory Pierce, who resigned last month to take a city manager's postion in the Panhandle. Hohn was supported by Mayor Frankie Burnett and council member Lara Bradburn. The other finalist, Robert "Butch" Battista, was favored by council members Joe Bernardini and Joe Johnston. Hohn will serve until the November 2012 election.
