Eric Gisler, co-chair of the Oconee County Democratic Committee, qualified last week to run for chairman of the Board of Commissioners.
Gisler will run unopposed in the May 19 Primary and will face whomever wins the Republican ticket, which is a three-way race among incumbent John Daniell, Carol Bennett and Johnny Pritchett.
