Richmond County Commissioner Thad Ussery was honored during the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners’ 107th Annual Conference, which was held Aug. 14-17 in Buncombe County.

Ussery was one of six county commissioners recognized for achieving 20 years of service as a county commissioner. Ussery was first elected to the Richmond County Board of Commissioners in 1994, and he is seeking a sixth four-year term this November.

“Getting re-elected is quite a feat these days, but to be able to convince the voters to return you to office for two decades is pretty impressive,” said NCACC President Ray Jeffers when presenting the award.

Mr. Ussery stated that it is an honor to serve the citizens of Richmond County and that “he would like to stay around a little longer” as he seeks re-election in November to a sixth term on the Richmond County Board of Commissioners.
