Gov. Ron DeSantis will have the opportunity to appoint a commissioner in Marion County, who will represent the district which includes The Villages.
Marion County Commissioner Jeff Gold has announced that he will be stepping down from his post in July.
“I have achieved everything I can as Marion County Commissioner and feel I can better serve the community, as well as the state and nation, in other capacities,” Gold wrote in his resignation letter.
The governor will have the opportunity to appoint Gold’s successor.
Gold was elected to the District 3 seat in 2016.
District 3 includes the village of Briar Meadow, Calumet Grove, Chatham, Piedmont, Springdale and Woodbury.
