This should be an easy question, but it isn’t.
And the answer is a saw sales owner who previously promoted
development in an agricultural region of Lowndes County,
a realtor whose job is to promote development, and a preacher
who previously chaired a board that wanted to take tax money
from the county without rural citizens being able to vote on it.
None of them appear to have any experience in agriculture.
These are the people who oversaw the recent revaluation of rural
(and commercial) properties that would drive development into parts of Lowndes County that the Comprehensive Plan says should be agricultural.
Now I know all three of them, and they’re fine people.
But perhaps some rural people need to ask them some questions.
