I would like to thank Charley Nix, Phil Sutton and Bill Blalock for the unwavering support that each of these men provided to our new Tax Assessors office over the past two years. Without their legal and policy advice it would have been horrific trying to get through all the issues we faced.
With their guidance, we were able to help make it possible to bring in over 400 new jobs in just the past two years. The new companies were brought in through their direct leadership.
Charley, Phil and Bill, God Bless you and from the bottom of my heart, I wish you the best in the future.
