Theresa Galvin and Crystal Williams

Several women have served on the Jackson County Legislature since it was first formed in 1973, but none has every been chosen by her peers to serve as the Legislative Chair -- until now. 

During their first meeting of the new year, the county's Legislators unanimously elected Crystal Williams (2nd District At-Large) to serve as the body's chairwoman for 2016. 

"We just made history today," Williams said moments after Legislator Dan Tarwater III (4th District) handed her the chairperson's gavel. "Never before has the Legislature had a woman as chair, let alone a woman as chair and vice chair."

The Legislature also unanimously selected Theresa Galvin (6th District) to serve as the vice chairwoman.
