BUCKHANNON -

The Upshur County Commission has a new president this year.

J.C. Raffety will take over for Donnie Tenney, who's not planning to run for re-election.

Tenney has been a member of the county commission for 17 years, serving 10 years as president.

Tenney said he wants to serve as a mentor, and provide some seasoning to the new commission president.

Raffety said all three members work as a team, and he looks forward to the challenges ahead.

"It is an increased responsibility, increased requirement, knowledge and skills necessary to understand and pass judgement on issues before the commission," said Raffety.

Raffety has served on the commission for three years.

Commissioners also voted to keep meeting on Thursday mornings at 9 a.m.
