NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced the appointments of 172 Tennesseans to 70 boards and commissions.
“I appreciate the commitment of these men and women to serve their fellow Tennesseans, and I want to thank them for their willingness to give their time and effort to these issues,” Haslam said. “Tennessee will be well-represented on these boards and commissions.”
Two Clarksvillians were appointed by Governor Haslam: Joyce Paggeot was appointed to the Commission on Aging and Disability, and Randy Wilkins was appointed to the Water and Wastewater Financing Board.
Paggeot is an active member and volunteer at the Clarksville Montgomery County Senior Citizen Center.
Wilkins is manager of the East Montgomery Utility District.
The governor continues to evaluate the state’s complete range of boards and commissions to identify potential reforms that might be made to ensure Tennesseans have a government that is responsive, effective and efficient.
Appointment terms are varied due to differing statutory requirements or term limits determined by specific qualifications.
