Haag was elected last year to represent District 2. After the District 2 seat was vacated with a resignation, commissioners could have appointed Haag early, but decided not to. Haag then ran unopposed in November.

Moore said the commission has until Oct. 4 to appoint someone to replace Haag. The matter will be discussed at the next meeting on Sept. 17.
