Women serving on fiscal bodies since 1990
Commissioner Donna Dowdy served on the Budget Committee when a woman, Beverly Woodruff, served as Mayor and made the nomination.
Judy Hackeny served on the Purchasing Commission by virtue of her position as the purchasing agent for the county according to Clerk Roy Crawford.
Mae Owneby served on the Financial Management Committee by virtue of her position as the Director of Schools according to Clerk Roy Crawford.
Commissioner Jane Fleming served on the Financial Management Committee in the late 80’s and early 90’s. I think that I read in the Commission minutes that she also served on the Budget Committee in the early 90’s but I didn’t make a copy of that so I will have to recheck that.
The early 1990’s was as far back as Rhonda Pitts and I researched. Assuming that Crawford is correct, only one woman commissioner was nominated by a male mayor from the 90’s on.
