Blackberry District Supervisor Jim Adams and Horsepasture District Supervisor Debra Buchanan will lead the Henry County Board of Supervisors in 2020.
Adams was elected chairman and Buchanan was elected vice-chairman Thursday at the board’s annual Organizational Meeting. They were unanimously selected to serve the one-year terms.
“It has been an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Henry County and I am optimistic about the upcoming year,” Adams said. “I appreciate the support of my fellow board members and the citizens.”
Adams previously served as chairman for the past fours. He also held the position in 2008, 2012, and 2013. He also served as vice chairman for four years in 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2015. Buchanan has previously served three years as chairman in 2009, 2010, and 2011. She has previously served as vice-chairman from 2002 to 2006, and 2017 to the present.
Adams has been the Blackberry District representative on the board since 2002. Buchanan has been the Horsepasture District representative on the board since 1996.
The board also established its meeting dates for 2020. It will meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month, with the exception of the December meeting. That meeting is set for Dec. 15 to avoid conflicts with the holidays.
The board also approved its 2020 bylaws.
