Candidate will seek Augusta District 10 seat

Sean Frantom, a 31-year-old recruiter for Spherion Staffing Services and co-owner of For the Fans Entertainment LLC, will announce plans to run for the Augusta Commission's super District 10 seat at 2 p.m. today in The Partridge Inn's ballroom, according to a news release.

The seat covers half of the city and is held by Don Grantham, who has served two consecutive terms and can't run again this year. No one else has made formal announcements about seeking the seat, although former Mayor Bob Young is considered a likely candidate.

Frantom's volunteer work includes serving on the Imperial Theatre board and as president of the Young Professionals of Augusta, which recently helped raise money and renovate homes for the new Kroc Center.

According to the news release, today Frantom will speak about his intentions to run "and will not answer questions until a later time."
