It is after much thought and prayer that I’ve decided not to seek re-election to the position of Bryan County tax commissioner. I will retire at the end of this year, after 36 and a half years in the tax office – the last 17 as your tax commissioner.
Throughout my tenure as tax commissioner, Bryan County has seen many changes. We’ve experienced a lot a of growth, as well as vast changes in technology, even changes in the tax laws themselves! We always tried to keep up with those changes, while still trying to keep the “small town” atmosphere that makes Bryan County special. It was important to me that people felt that they could come into this office and be treated with dignity and respect.
I’ve been humbled and honored to have served as your tax commissioner, and I will treasure the friendships that I have made. I will always be grateful to those who supported me, especially the staff in the office. They are like family to me and I know they are the ones that truly made the office “tick.”
I will miss the people I’ve worked with every day, as well as the citizens we served. There is no greater honor than to be a public servant. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, for giving me that honor.
