The Hamilton County Commission will vote this morning on the nomination of Mike Compton as county mayor chief of staff, Mayor Jim Coppinger said.

"He brings a lot to the table from both the public and private sector," Coppinger said.

If approved, Compton would fill the role once occupied by Jeannine Alday, who retired this month.

Compton currently works as chief administrative officer for Walden Security, which has a contract to provide security services for the county. He served as chief of staff for former Mayor Bob Corker from 2001-05 and held a position as vice president for Corker Group Inc. for more than 20 years.
