The Clay County Board of Supervisors held its first meeting of the new year Monday, which included the annual appointment of a new board president and vice president. District 5 Supervisor Floyd McKee was appointed as the president for the duration of this year while District 1 Supervisor Lynn Horton was elected as the boardâ€™s vice president.
As president, McKee will be responsible for overseeing regularly scheduled board meetings.
â€śYouâ€™re kind of a like a judge in a court,â€ť McKee said. â€śYou try and lead in the right direction.â€ť
McKee served as board president nearly four years ago and has served Clay County on the board for six years.
â€śI want to keep steady on working and trying to bring new jobs in,â€ť McKee said. â€śI feel like weâ€™re fixing to have spin-off jobs from Yokohama. Weâ€™re going to work hard to keep jobs coming in.â€ť
