Gov. Rick Scott has appointed Brian Hamman as a Lee County commissioner.
Hamman, 32, of Cape Coral, will fill the unexpired term of former commissioner Tammy Hall, who resigned after being charged with siphoning money from her campaign account for personal expenses.
Hamman is a manager of Market Development for CenturyLink. Previously, he was a financial advisor and journalist for Fox 4 and WINK News in Fort Myers. He is a graduate of Leadership Fort Myers and Leadership Cape Coral. Hamman received his associate's degree from Edison State College and his bachelor's degree from Florida Gulf Coast University.
Hamman is appointed for a term beginning today, Oct. 29, and ending Nov. 25, 2014.
"Brian will serve the families of Lee County with honesty and integrity," Scott said in a prepared statement released by his office. "As a lifelong resident of Lee County, I am confident that he will make a great Commissioner and will help create jobs and opportunities for the families of the area."
