Effective September 1, Carter County will have a new trustee. Randal Lewis, who served in the office 28 years, chose not to seek re-election this year. He will be succeeded by his son, Chad Lewis, who was elected by voters this year to fill the position.
Lewis was honored Friday with a retirement party by his office staff. Lewis said, “It has been an honor and privilege to serve the people of Carter County for the past 28 years.
“The accomplishments made during my years of service could not have happened without the expertise of my staff. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for their tireless work and dedication. I’m sure the office will continue to provide the same level of service under Chad that it did when I was there. Also, I would like to extend a very special thank you to my family and many friends that have supported me throughout my time in office. It has been a joy to serve,” said Lewis.
Lewis said he intends to enjoy the beauty of the lakes and mountains with family and friends during his retirement. “I’ll still be around,” he said.
His son, Chad, beat four other candidates for the office in this year’s Republican Primary. He was unopposed in the August election.
