Peggy Palmer's service recognized by County Commission
Peggy Palmer's last County Commission meeting as part of the Board of Commissioners was Tuesday.
Palmer has represented District 2 since May 2010. That district includes the City of Augusta and the Augusta, Spring, Bloomington, Logan, Rock Creek and Clay Townships. Marc Murphy will be succeeding her and will be sworn in on Mon., Jan. 9.
"I just want to wish everybody goodbye. This is my last meeting, and I wish you all well in the future – and I know Marc's going to do a great job. And have fun," Palmer said to her fellow county commissioners.
"We thank you very much for your service," County Commissioner Jeff Masterson said before he and the other commissioners presented Palmer with an honorary plaque commemorating her years of service.
"It's been fun," Palmer said.
