The week wrapped up with a called meeting by the Board of Commissioners to announce the new county manager. Kevin Poe from Floyd County will be Jackson County’s new manager. Roxane Rose and I were there to hear the announcement and welcome Mr. Poe. He has a lovely family that I read about in The Paper and they sound like a welcomed addition to our community. We also had a chance to speak with several commissioners. We hope our presence reminds them of the request that we made in March 2011 and our drive to get the shelter project underway.
Also, Friday kicked off a mini-campaign on Facebook called Five Facebook Fridays. For five Fridays, we are asking each of our 460+ facebook fans to donate $5 to the Raise the Woof campaign. Our first Friday was a success with over $75 contributed! With 4 more Fridays to go, there is plenty of time to get involved and make your five minute, five dollar contribution. If you have any questions about the shelter project or want to get involved in anyway, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. I welcome the opportunity to speak with anyone about a project that is so close to my heart. We are off to the Georgia football game today! The weather is perfect for football. Go Dawgs! Raise the Woof!
