Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown was selected this morning by a unanimous vote of the three-member Board of Commissioners to serve as president for 2019.  Brown begins her fourth term on the board this week. She has previously served as Board President in 2008, 2011, 2014, and 2015.

Each year, the commissioners select one of their own to serve as president of the board, overseeing the board’s weekly General Session and Briefing meetings.  The board president also serves as spokesperson for the Board of Commissioners at community events, meetings, and during media interviews.

“I want to thank my fellow commissioners for a great 2018, and the opportunity to serve as board president in 2019,” said Brown. “I am looking forward to working closely with my colleagues, administrator, directors and staff, to create a strong, safe and sustainable community, and to consistently search for ways to improve the quality of life for every resident, every day.”

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners meets in General Session each Tuesday at 9:00 am and Thursday at 9:00 am on the 26th floor of the Franklin County Courthouse, 373 S. High Street.  All meetings are open to the public.
