Dawson’s Thurmond to bring county report to Squires & Stags

By Bennett Whipple

Dawson County’s newly elected commission chairman Billy Thurmond will address Squires & Stags at the club’s Friday, April 7 breakfast meeting. Thurmond, the former director of the county’s Emergency Services, was elected to the office in January and succeeds Mike Berg, long-time commission chairman.

He will talk about his vision for Dawson County which is to make sure that anything we do as a board improves the quality of life of our citizens. He will cover these areas in his Dawson County report:

  • Managing the growth that is coming;
  • Meeting future transportation needs;
  • Meeting service delivery demands of today and in the future;
  • Exploring funding options; and
  • How citizens can help by serving on boards and authorities.

Thurmond is married to Lisa Thurmond, Dawson County’s magistrate judge. They have two sons and four grandsons. The Thurmonds are members of Kilough Church by the Lake and he is a member of the Kiwanis Club.

For its April meeting, Squires & Stags will meet in the Dogwood Room at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. Coffee is ready at 7:45 a.m. followed by a buffet breakfast served at 8:00 a.m. Big Canoe residents and guests are invited to attend the meeting. The price of breakfast is $13 payable on your POA account or by cash at the door.
