This was the first meeting the newly seated Commissioner for District 5, Kenneth Stephens assumed his responsibilities. It was also the first session conducted by the new Board Chairman, Jeremy Branch. Chuck Lockey, the previous Chairman, had relinquished the center position to Branch and was seated to his left side.
Everyone seemed comfortable in their new roles, and the meeting was conducted in good order. We at the Jackson County Times wish them all good fortune in the coming year.
