Posted August 9, 2005 1:00 a.m. EDT

— Durham County Commissioner Lewis Cheek may give up his seat.

Cheek is serving his first term on the board. Lately, the corporate attorney has come under fire for representing a developer that was seeking rezoning from the city council.

Some people have complained about a possible conflict of interest.

Cheek, who also spent four years on the City Council, said he will take the next 30 days to make his decision.
