New appointments made for County Boards
Tattnall County Board of Commissioners logo
To qualify as a municipality to receive LOST funds, they must provide at least three of the following services: water, sewage, garbage collection, police protection, fire protection, or library.

Andria Moore Holmes was appointed by the Tattnall County Commissioners to replace Eileen Bland on the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) Tattnall County Advisory Board.  Holmes will fill the remaining term of  Bland, which expires June 30, 2024, and the Commissioners approved another term for Holmes, which will end June 30, 2029.

Jimmy Durrence was also approved as the Tattnall Board of Elections Republican Party member to serve on the Tattnall Board of Elections, replacing Elaine Wallace, whose term expires December 31, 2022.  Wallace recently married and moved to Toombs County, and a Tattnall Elections Board member must live in the County.

Board of Elections Chairman Dennis Odom explained that the policy is for the executive committee of each political party to submit a name to the Clerk of Courts, but neither the Republican Party nor Democratic Party in Tattnall has an executive committee.

Odom has recommended that each party submit names, and the commissioners will then decide based on those recommendations. Durrence's name was submitted by the local Republican Party. Appointment terms are every two years, on election years. All current appointees will serve until December 31, 2022.  Re-appointments will be set in November by the Commissioners for all Board of Elections appointees for the next two-year term to begin January 1, 2023, to December 31, 2024. The Democratic appointee is Jessie Rhodes.
