Mary Ann Lindley is the new chair of the Leon County Commission. Bill Proctor will serve as vice chair. Elected in 2012, Lindley served as vice chair last year. She says she’s excited for the coming year and thanks outgoing chair Kristin Dozier.
" I loved being your left hand woman, I guess is what we’re doing here. You’ve brought so much dignity to this job,” Lindley says.
Dozier and Lindley were the first female chair and vice chair to serve together. But Lindley says their relationship started long before that when she wrote an article for the Tallahassee Democrat about a then teenage Dozier who was working to start a Women’s History Month.
