The James City County Board of Supervisors presented Resolutions of Appreciation to L. Carlyle Ford and Jack D. Edwards at their March 13 meeting.
Ford (pictured left) was recognized for his service on the Agricultural and Forestal District Advisory Committee from 1986-2018. Among his accomplishments was the creation of the AFD program that preserved more than 17,676 acres of land in the County. Ford began with the County as a Business License Inspector in 1974 and was promoted to Deputy Business License Inspector in 1980. He also served as Commissioner of the Revenue from 1984 until his retirement in 1999.
Edwards (pictured right) was recognized for his service on the James City County Electoral Board from 2002 until 2018. The Electoral Board is charged with conducting elections in the County and certifying the results. It is comprised of three members appointed by the James City County/Williamsburg Circuit Court judges. Prior to serving on the Electoral Board, Edwards was elected to the James City County Board of Supervisors from 1972-2000.
James City County extends its thanks to Ford and Edwards for their tireless service to our community.
