Fellow Team Members, the BOC, through Chairman Dennis Brinson, and I have agreed to a “contract separation agreement”, and I will serve through April 30, 2015. Under the current circumstances, I believe this is the best course for Decatur County. More importantly, I want each of you to know that it has been my honor to work with you toward the betterment of everyone in Decatur County. I greatly appreciate your dedicated support and hard work toward that goal and ask you to continue your best professional efforts as we go forward. We have a lot to get done this month.
