-A A +A

Former Cedar Key Mayor Heath Davis was chosen to fill the unexpired term on the City Commission by the four remaining members on Tuesday evening. 

Davis who did not seek re-election in 2011 replaces the man who replaced him on the commission, businessman David Feigin. Feigin resigned last month citing the need to pay more attention to his business, Island Pizzeria. 

Davis ran for city commission in 2000 and served as mayor before losing in 2002. He ran again in 2003 and stayed on the commission for four years before taking a year off. He returned to the commission at the end of the year's hiatus. 

In this appointment he will serve until the next city election in May 2013. 

Davis is president of Kingfisher Holdings Inc., The Heath Davis Company, Inc.,  and the Kingfisher Condominium Owners Association, Inc., and is vice president of Drummond Community Bank in Cedar Key. He helped start and has chaired the Cedar Key Aquaculture Association, serves on the Levy Schools Foundation board and is on the board of the Cedar Key Historical Society.
