Lee Webb was recently presented with a plaque by Thomasville Mayor Max Beverly in recognition of Webb’s service to the community as the honorary council member for February.
Prior to moving to Thomasville to serve as the executive director of Thomasville Landmarks Inc., Webb worked in Washington, D.C., as the liaison and program analyst for the Department of Energy at the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, an independent federal agency.
“I am very appreciative to (Mayor) Beverly for asking me to be the honorary council member for the month of February. As a new resident and member of the Thomasville community, it was a great opportunity to meet our local elected officials and see how our city operates. Thomasville Landmarks values our relationship with the city, and the work we do in partnership,” Webb said. “I am excited to be the new executive director at Landmarks and look forward to collaborating with the city for many years to come. Together, we have the opportunity to do exciting projects that will continue to make Thomasville a great place to live.”
At various times each year, council members select a citizen to be the honorary council member. As an honorary council member, citizens serve for one month, when they participate in council meetings and council-related committee meetings for a first-hand account of what it takes to keep city government running smoothly.
