Brown said his last eight years in the commissioner’s office were enjoyable ones.  “It’s been a very rewarding experience for me,”said Brown,” I knew very little about city and county government even though I was a city councilman for approximately two years.  I want to thank the people for voting me in and having faith in me.  Hopefully, I’ve carried out the work they sent me here to do.”

As he prepares to embark on a new phase in life, Brown offered words of advice to his predecessor.  “I think always you have to tell the public what you need and why you need it,” said Brown,” Don’t try to sneak anything by but instead just put the cards on the table and tell them just like it is.  Typically, they’ll have the faith in you to go ahead and carry out those projects.  I think you just have to be fair and upfront.”

Norvelle and his wife have lived in the Saline County area for nearly 50 years.
