Commissioner Says She Won't Resign

Dare County Republican Commissioner Cheryl Byrd announced she would not resign, as she had previously said she would in a letter sent to the Dare County board a month ago. Byrd said she felt uncomfortable with her replacement, Manteo Police Chief Francis D'Ambra. She says D'Ambra's appointment to her seat would unfairly represent the population distribution of Dare County, with four representatives from Manteo, one from Hatteras and just two from the beach communities.
