BONIFAY — Holmes County Board of County Commissioners and residents wished Commissioners Jim King and Phillip Music a fond farewell with a reception after the last regularly scheduled meeting they’d ever attend in an official capacity on Tuesday, Nov. 13.

“I’m saying this partly as your attorney and partly as a citizen of Holmes County,” said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. “I’ve worked for many counties and I can honestly say I’ve never worked for such a county as this. You all set the tempo for the meetings, having had your differences still being able to come together with resolve and leaving each meeting with the same camaraderie.”

Goodman said this is an example that could be taught to the next generation.

“I only hope that the next board comes together as peaceably as this one has,” said Goodman. “On behalf of me and my family I appreciate all you’ve done.”

Commissioner Monty Merchant also said it had been good.

“It’s been a pleasure,” said Merchant. “There’s a lot of years and experience that’s going to be missed.”

Commissioner Kenneth Williams also said that he enjoyed working with King and Music.
