Halifax County manager Tony N. Brown was recently appointed to serve on the board of the North Carolina Local Government Employees Retirement System.
LGERS provides benefits to employees of cities, towns, counties, boards, commissions, and other entities of local government in North Carolina.
Because participation by local governments is voluntary, the operation of LGERS is dependent upon the acceptance and continuing financial support of the governing bodies and employees of local governments.
The LGERS Board of Trustees has 13 members, including five ex-officio or public teachers and state employees retirement system board members, plus eight members representing local governments.
Brown was appointed by Governor Roy Cooper on July 10 and will serve a four-year term on the board.
Halifax County Board of Commissioners Chairman Vernon J. Bryant praised Brown’s appointment stating, “I am proud of Mr. Brown’s appointment to the LGERS board and he will represent Halifax County well. His extensive experience as a county manager with a background in human resources will make him a valuable asset to the LGERS board.”
