HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Towns County Commissioner Cliff Bradshaw invited the Junior Board of Local Government to attend the monthly county meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Bradshaw initiated the program shortly after taking office in response to an inquiry from his son, asking, “what it is, exactly, that do commissioners do?’
The group of high schools students serve on a voluntary basis, exploring the ends-and-outs of local government. Bradshaw intends to unite “our future leaders” with officials from an array of county agencies, including the tax commission, sheriff’s office, clerk of court, and probate office in order to educate the junior board on the inner workings of each division.
“These are great students,” Bradshaw commended, “These are great kids.”
In attendance, and proudly introduced by the commissioner, were: Kendall Floyd, Seth Fullerton, Chase Rogers, Calab Ledford, Wesley Calhoun, Emily Williams, Kaitlyn Crowder, and Trevor Bradley. Not pictured, Taylor Cornett.
