Shelby County Commissioner David Lillard recently took the Oath of Office as Chairman of the Shelby County Board of Commissioners.
Chairman Lillard’s County Commission District includes Lakeland. He is interested in hearing from Lakeland residents and very responsive to needs of Lakeland. I have been very pleased with his awareness of the County impact on Lakeland and the need to represent his District, while he is also aware of the needs of all of Shelby County on the County Commission, especially in his role as Chair of the Commission.
Commissioner Lillard also serves as President of the Tennessee County Commissioners Association for 2006-2007, where he provides statewide leadership for Tennessee’s 1600 County Commissioners in Tennessee’s 95 Counties. Commissioner Lillard is the first Shelby County Commissioner to be elected President since TCCA was founded in 1966.
Commissioner Lillard has represented our District since 2002. His father, David Lillard, is a County Commissioner in Fayette County, Tennessee. They are the only father and son who serve simultaneously as County Commissioners from different Tennessee counties.
