RUTHERFORD COUNTY, N. C. – The county commissioners approved Richard Lundy as the Tourism Development Authority’s (TDA) board chair at their meeting last night. Controversy over the recommendations, meeting notifications, and transparency over the board and the TDA’s  actions postponed the appointment from the July 2015 meeting.

In the interval between meetings, both county commissioner chair, Bryan King, and vice-chair, Alan Toney, met with Lundy to discuss the direction of the TDA and his appointment.

During public comments, the prior TDA board chair Dawn Hemmelgarn expounded upon the process used to recommend a chair and stated that they had attained legal counsel, not Richard Williams (county attorney), to state their position.

The video clip from the meeting will be posted when made available from the county. Welcome aboard, Mr. Lundy.
