Two-term Osceola County Commissioner Cheryl Grieb has been elected chair of the county commission for the coming year.
Grieb, a Democrat re-elected in the county’s District 4 in November, succeeds Fred Hawkins Jr. Her district includes parts of the cities of Kissimmee and St. Cloud.
“It is an honor to be selected to lead this Board for the coming year,” Grieb stated in a news release issued by the county. “And while I know as a community we face many challenges, by working together we can continue to move Osceola County in the right direction.”
During the same meeting, Viviana Janer was selected vice chair.
Grieb, who owns two real estate companies, represents Osceola County as the MetroPlan chair, and also serves on the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council.
