Dan Howell, longtime executive assistant to Bradley County Mayor Gary Davis, announced he would be taking a leave of absence from the county mayor's office beginning in November. He said he will be making an announcement about his future plans in the coming weeks.
"It has been a true honor to work beside Mayor Davis as he has served the people of Bradley County. We could not ask for a better mayor, and I am proud to call him my friend. I look forward to continuing to help Mayor Davis and supporting him in his re-election next year," Mr. Howell said.
"I also look forward to what awaits me next, as many in the community have encouraged me to look at other opportunities. I have enjoyed serving the people of Bradley, Polk, and Meigs counties as Committeeman of the Republican State Executive Committee, and I am eager to continue serving folks throughout Southeast Tennessee. The next few weeks and months will be exciting, and I will share my plans soon."
