This morning at 8:30 AM at the Work Session and tomorrow at 5:30PM for voting by the Lowndes County Commission, Vivian Miller-Cody wants to be reappointed to Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful, while Adam Floyd does not. Three people applied for that second slot: Tracy Chapman, Regina Kimbrough, and Travis Morgan). “Three applications… are included”, apparently in the board packet, but not in what is posted with the agenda, so we don’t know who these people are. I would guess Tracy Chapman is the Assistant District Attorney; that Regina Kimbrough is the second grade teacher at Sallas Mahone Elementary School,
City of Valdosta PR, 2017 Jr. Fire Marshal School of the Year, “Trey Sherwood of Valdosta Insurance Service, sponsor of the Jr. Fire Marshal program, presented the 2017 Jr. Fire Marshal School of the Year awards to Regina Kimbrough (left) of Sallas Mahone Elementary School and to Danielle Gibbs of Pinevale Elementary School.”
and that Travis Morgan is a manager at Best Buy, but I’m only guessing, while the county could just post the applications, like counties in metropolitan areas eleswhere do.
Jason A. Smith, Valdosta Daily Times, 10 April 2018, Volunteers work recycling event,
Volunteers from Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful and other organizations used rain coats and umbrellas to keep dry as residents poured in to recycle, and rain trickled down, Saturday at Mathis Auditorium….
For Travis Morgan, a manager at Best Buy, volunteering for the event is his way of ensuring future generations can enjoy the beauty of Lowndes County, he said.
Morgan was born and raised in Lowndes County and would go out to the rivers, and spend time in nature as a child, he said. However, he remembers seeing trash littering the rivers and being disappointed in what could happen in the future.
“I want my kids to be able to enjoy (nature),” Morgan said. “I want my employees, and their families to get to enjoy everything the area has to offer.”
Here is the agenda.
