Cap Fendig, a life-long resident of St. Simons Island and former At-Large Commissioner for Glynn County, from 2000 to 2008, has announced his intent to run for Islands Commissioner (District 2) in the upcoming 2020 election.

“Over the past year, numerous people have called and expressed concerns over traffic, infrastructure needs, and encroaching developments. We need a vision for the future, one that truly encompasses the heart of our people and one which can be implemented.”
Having served 8 years as an At-Large Commissioner, Fendig understands the needs of the whole community. Fendig would look forward to working cooperatively with the rest of the Commissioners and community partners to address the various needs of Glynn County.
“I believe I have the experience, the community relationships, and the temperament to work for the people as one of their elected officials, who can represent their voice.” Fendig is making this early announcement of his plans to run in the next election to put together the people’s agenda ahead of taking office if elected.
