I lost a close friend and Gilmer county residents lost a great commissioner that fought for the taxpayers. Randy Bell was a friend before I ran and as we were running against each other we made a deal that if we lost we would keep talking and visiting for friendship and ideas to help run the county. The last 8 months not being able to have our lunches were greatly missed. I want the people to remember Randy Bell as the one that fought for the taxpayers, not for more government. My prayers are for his mother and family. Randy will be missed.

Thank you for paying tribute to Randy. He considered you a good friend and he told me recently how much he missed your lunches together. We will all miss him greatly. He was a true friend and asset to this county. I pray for him and his family. Joene
