Pittsboro, NC — The Chatham County Board of Commissioners has updated its list of commissioner assignments to dozens of county and regional advisory boards and committees. In the majority of cases, commissioners serve as a non-voting member or liaison, but in a few cases, the commissioner is a voting member.

“We always welcome contacts from our constituents on any topic, but we felt that residents may find it helpful to know which commissioner is assigned to an advisory or policy board that has jurisdiction over an issue of interest,” said George Lucier, chair of the Board of Commissioners. “It can be faster route to get questions answered or to have issues raised before the appropriate group of people.”

While several assignments did not change from 2008, several revisions were made due to Sally Kost’s election as the commissioner for District 1.
