New Board President
At the first meeting of 2022, the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors elected Supervisor Michael Lee as Board President for 2022. Supervisor Lee takes over the position from Supervisor Mark Gardner. “I want to thank Supervisor Gardner for his hard work as President during 2021. I pledge to be diligent and serve the people of DeSoto County with honor,” said Supervisor Lee.
Supervisor Ray Denison was elected as Vice-President.
At the beginning of each year, the Board chooses from its members a President and a Vice-President to serve during the year. The Board President presides at Board meetings and signs documents in the name of the county. The Vice-President substitutes when the president is absent.
