Reeves seeks to work with board
M. Anthony “Tony” Reeves took his seat for the first time at the Charlotte County Board of Supervisors meeting on Jan. 8.
Reeves was elected supervisor for the Cullen/Red House District in November defeating Cornell B. “Brick” Goldman and Nadine R. Pannell.
“I want to learn and work with the other six members of the board during my term,” said Reeves. “I hope the seven of us can have a like-minded goal of helping the county.”
The new supervisor says that he hopes the BOS can work together to bring businesses and industry to the county. “We are a poor county, but we are not poor people,” said Reeves. “We go and spend our money in other places because there is nothing here, so we need something in this county to help with the income and taxes.”
Although Reeves has never held an elected position until now, he did seek the Cullen/Red House Supervisors position twice before in 1991 and 1999.
Community service has been a major part of Reeves’s life.
He served as fire chief of the Red House Volunteer Fire Department for 10 years, served as president of Phenix Elementary School PTO, president of Randolph-Henry Athletic Boosters and president of the Charlotte County FFA Alumni and currently serves as Pastor of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church in Abilene.
