Long-time Kosciusko County Councilman Tom Anglin received a standing ovation at the conclusion of Thursday night’s regular council meeting as his councilmates and fellow county office holders bid him farewell.
Anglin opened the last meeting of 2012 noting it was also his last meeting as an elected official.
“Since I’ve been on the council since 1974, I’ve worked with 22 men and two women on the council,” Anglin said, noting he has also seen 10 county commissioners in those years. “It’s been a great 38 years and I hate to leave, but I’m not discouraged.”
“It’s been great to work with them all. I’ve also went through seven auditors.” In addressing current auditor Marsha McSherry, Anglin added, “Marsha’s been terrific; given us so much knowledge.”
Anglin was personally thanked for his service by county commissioners Bob Conley and Ron Truex, as well as sheriff Rocky Goshert.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Truex presented Anglin with a plaque for his many years of dedication and service to the county and its business.
