BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) – Bristol, Va, a city dealing with around $100 million in debt, had to choose a new commissioner of revenue Tuesday night.
Cloe Eva Barker was elected for the position. Barker has worked in the office for 31 years and currently serves as the current commissioner’s chief deputy.
That opposition came from insurance agency owner, Rodger Williams.
Barker took the win with 80% of the vote.
“With my educational background and the experience all of these years, with the condition the city is in right now, I don’t feel someone that is not experienced would be a good fit for the office,” Barker said.
