County Commissioner Resigns

Houston County Judge Erin Ford reports that County Commissioner Pct. 1 Roger Dickey tendered his resignation this morning, effective today. Gary Lovell, who defeated Dickey in the March 1 Primary Election, will be sworn into office at the Tuesday, March 22, Commissioners Court meeting. There were no candidates for this position from the Democratic Party, so Lovell would have been sworn in on Jan. 1, 2017 if Dickey had not resigned.
