The Princess Anne Town Commissioners have decided to keep Lionel Frederick’s seat open.
It has been on hold since his conviction more than a month ago on extortion charges.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the commissioners decided to hold his seat open until Frederick exhausts his appeals.
If Frederick is successful he would be reinstated.
Meanwhile, Daily Times reports that the town pulled the payment from his $6-thousand salary pending the outcome of the legal process.
Frederick has also been barred from participating in commission business.
