Retired Director of the Environmental Toxicology Program, George Lucier won a seat to the Chatham County Board of Commissioners in the May 2nd primary election. Lucier, who will be unopposed in the November general election, has been active in Chatham County politics since his retirement from NIEHS in 2000. He was a member of the County's Planning Board from 2001 to 2004 and served as Chair the last two years of his tenure. Lucier ran on a platform of better planning for the rapid growth in Northeast Chatham, expanding economic development in the county, and protection of the environment and quality of life. Lucier said, "I will represent all of Chatham County and will work hard to end the divisions between the Eastern and Western sections."
