Today, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee announced nearly 200 appointees to a series of key boards and commissions ahead of fiscal year 2020 which begins on Monday, July 1. Among those appointed is Ricky Essary of Chester County who was appointed to the State Soil Conservation Committee as At-Large Representative of Soil Conservation.
Essary was first appointed to the State Soil Conservation Committee last fall to finish an unexpired term of a previous board member. His current appointment is for three years. Essary lives near the confluence of Chester County, Hardin County and McNairy County. He is a full-time farmer.
“I am proud to announce these appointees who will help our state continue to flourish and be a leader in the nation,” said Lee. “I would like to thank these leaders for being willing to serve our state and help us solve many of the big issues important to Tennesseans.”
Appointees will fill a variety of different roles to ensure that these boards and commissions will continue conducting the state’s business at the highest level.
