The Henry County Board of Supervisors selected Jim Adams and Joe Bryant as chairman and vice chairman, respectively, during its 2023 Organizational Meeting on Jan. 9.
Adams, of the Blackberry District, was selected to lead the board for the tenth time during his 21-year tenure.
“I’d like to thank the board for their support,” he said “We all have some of the same needs and concerns. It’s great that we can listen to each other and try to work towards our collective goals. Thank you for the confidence that you’ve shown in me.”
Bryant, of the Collinsville District, will serve his second term as vice-chairman after being selected for the position following his 2021 re-election bid.

I can look and see bright things in the future. Mr. Adams worked real hard to make sure this county stands for excellence. That’s why I’m honored to be second in command.”
