After Judge/Executive Stan Humphries announcement at last Tuesday’s Fiscal Court session of the resignation of Jeannie Reinitz, named treasurer July 1, he asked the search committee that selected Reinitz to reassemble and select another candidate. By Friday, August 24, the committee announced its decision.
Magistrate Doug Taylor, as head of the committee said, “We were very fortunate in that we could expedite the procedure. A short time ago, we had several qualified applicants in a pool for the position. At the time of the initial search, one candidate stood out from the others. She had other duties and roles within the county, so we felt the public was better served with her in other locations than treasurer. She has performed these duties well, and the committee announces that Lucy Oliver has been offered and accepted the position, pending the approval of the Fiscal Court.”
With a motion from Magistrate Barry Littlejohn and a second from Magistrate Lacy Bush, the court unanimously approved Oliver’s appointment.
“We’re pleased with the committee’s choice and think Lucy Oliver will work well for us. Her first day as treasurer is September 1,” said Humphries.
