Nancy Gay has been promoted to become Columbia County’s elections director, succeeding the retired Deborah Marshall.
In addition, the Columbia County Development Authority plans to hire Robert F. Bennett as that agency’s new director.
The Board of Elections named Gay, 41, formerly the county’s voter registration coordinator, to the post Monday morning, said board Chairman Larry Long.
“We recognized excellent performance and increased responsibilities” in promoting Gay, Long said. “We’re looking forward to moving forward smoothly.”
