Council recognizes Basford

THOMASVILLE — During last week’s Thomasville City Council meeting, Lauren Basford was presented with a plaque by Councilmember Jay Flowers in recognition of her service to the community as the honorary councilmember for the month of November.

Basford, a south Georgia native, recently moved to Thomasville from her hometown of Quitman, where she now serves the community as the executive director of the Thomasville-Thomas County Chamber of Commerce.

"With all of the great creative momentum going on in Thomasville, this is such an exciting time to become a part of this vibrant community," Lauren said.

"It was truly an honor to serve as November’s honorary councilmember. I have always been fascinated by and have a lot of experience with local government. It was a great opportunity to meet everyone and see the inner workings of our city,” she added.

At various times each year, councilmembers select a citizen to be the honorary councilmember.

As an honorary councilmember, citizens serve for a period of one month, during which time they participate in council meetings and council-related committee meetings, in order to give them a first-hand account of what it takes to keep Thomasville running smoothly.
