Board president resigns after meeting

COLUMBUS — Lowndes County Board of Supervisors president Harry Sanders has resigned his position as head of the board.

Sanders resigned immediately after he and Supervisor John Holliman voted against a motion to borrow $2 million for road repairs at a March 1 meeting. The motion passed 3-2.

After the vote, Sanders said he does not have the support of the majority of the board.

Sanders declined to elaborate on his decision.

The meeting closed with a brief exchange over who will lead the board until the board can vote in a new president.

The Commercial Dispatch reports that Supervisor Frank Ferguson, the board’s vice president, assumes all duties as president until the board votes on new president.
