News Community LWV forum to feature reflections of past county commissioners

Community leaders who guided the county during a period of tremendous growth and change will be guests of the League of Women Voters of Macon County on Thursday, June 12.

Former county commissioners Harold Corbin, Allen Bryson, Janet Greene, Mark West, and Bob Simpson will offer their thoughts on the changes Macon County government has faced, the issues that were prominent during their time in office, and how citizens and leaders viewed each other and the county.

“These individuals are uniquely positioned to reflect on our recent history,” said Barbara McRae, who helped organize the program. “I think their comments will be invaluable for our understanding of the issues facing the county today.”

The meeting will be held at Tartan Hall in Franklin at noon. The public is invited.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization which encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The group meets the second Thursday of each month at noon at Tartan Hall of the First Presbyterian Church, on Church Street, Franklin.
