Current Board of Commission Chairman Kevin Little announced Tuesday he will not run for re-election in 2020. He released the following statement.
After months of prayerful consideration and reflection on my 19 years serving the citizens of Walton County as Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, I have decided not to pursue a sixth term re-election in 2020.
I ran twenty years ago with a vision of making “Walton County a Great Place for Your Family and Mine!” I am proud of the many accomplishments founded in a spirit of teamwork and cooperation. I would like to thank my fellow commissioners, other elected officials, Walton County employees, and most importantly the citizens for allowing me to serve as Chairman.
As difficult as the decision is to not seek re-election, I can reflect fondly on the past years knowing I have laid a strong foundation for the future success of Walton County.
Local investment banker, developer and farmer David Thompson has already announced that he will be seeking the seat that Little is vacating at the end of next year.
