New Year, New Council
After the 2016 November elections, our new Council member, Council C. F. “Chris” Sumpter, II won the District 1 County Council seat. We welcome Councilman Sumpter to our County Team and wish him great success in his first four-year term. County Council District 1 falls primarily in the northern region of our County around the Rembert/Rafting Creek area, but as far south as the Cherryvale community. He has hit the ground running meeting with numerous constituents in his district to determine how he may best serve our County.
Also, after each election cycle (every two years) Council must elect from its own body, a Chairman and Vice Chairman for a two-year period. At its first meeting in January, Council elected Councilman James T. McCain as Chairman, and Councilman James Byrd, Jr. as Vice Chairman. We look forward to working closely with the new leadership on County Council.
