A stalemate was broken on selecting a new County Commission chairman pro temp on Wednesday when Commissioner Marty Haynes switched votes.
He moved from supporting Chester Bankston to backing Jim Fields.
That led from a three-way tie that also included Commissioner Tim Boyd to a vote between Commissioners Fields and Boyd.
Commissioner Fields won 5-4 after getting support from himself, Commissioner Haynes, Joe Graham, Larry Henry and Fred Skillern.
Commissioner Boyd got votes from himself, Greg Beck, Warren Mackey and Commissioner Bankston.
