Joyner gives notice to Washington County BOCC

Abbott made a motion that the commissioners appoint Interim Human Resources Director Albert Davis as interim county administrator, but the motion was voted down 3-2, with Commissioners Lynn Gothard, Bush and Charles Brock voting against.

“No discredit to you, Mr. Davis,” Bush said, “but I don’t think we want to have a knee-jerk reaction.

“I’ve worked with about every county administrator this county has had, and Mr. Joyner has been one of the best,” said Public Services Director David Corbin. “It’s tearing at my heart to stand up here, and this is the first time I have ever done it.

“I appreciate the job you’ve done, and I wish you the best,” Corbin said to Joyner.

Goodman said he had learned quite a bit working with Joyner over the years. “I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and for my family,” he said to Joyner.

“If I had to rank the jobs in the county, the job of county administrator would have to be one of the most difficult,” Goodman told the commissioners. “Whoever sits in that seat next, deserves your respect.”

“This is one of the biggest losses the county has ever suffered,” County EMS Director Randy Truette said of Joyner’s resignation. “He’s been the very best county manager I ever worked for, and not just in Washington County.”
