As Liberty County government’s July-to-June fiscal year comes to a close the county commissioners have made 19 appointments to the various committees, boards and other bodies that help with managing the public business.

Shirley Frasier and Richard Hayes were reappointed to the council of the Coastal Regional Commission, the 10-county agency that provides planning and development services to cities and counties. Frasier and Hayes are private citizens; government officials like Commission Chairman Donald Lovette also serve. Hinesville Mayor Allen Brown chairs the CRC council.

Robert Tucker and Karisa Young were named to the Coastal Workforce Development Board. The board is part of the Worksource Georgia program encouraging employment by counseling, training, internships and similar offerings.

Newcomer Jason Baker joined five members reappointed to the county’s Cultural and Historic Committee chaired by Phil Odom. Other members are Luciria Lovette, Jeffrey Porter, Renee Reese and Natalie Hines.

Michael Alamo will continue his service on the county’s Department of Family and Children Services board. He will be joined by newcomer Roland VanHorn.

John Martin was renamed to membership on the Georgia forestry board.

Demmentrice Jefferson was appointed to a seat on the county library board. He fills a vacancy created by the retirement of LaFayne May, a mainstay of the local libraries and a veteran board member and chairman.

Liberty County Development Authority Executive Director Ron Tolley was reappointed to the board of the Middle Coastal Unified Development Authority.

Former Hinesville Mayor James Thomas was reappointed to the Public Facilities Authority along with Matthew Cardella. Cardella was also renamed to an at-large seat on the recreation board.
