French to lead Park County Commission in 2016

Park County Commissioner Tim French has been chosen by his peers to serve as the commission's chairman in 2016.

French’s fellow commissioners formally elected him to the post in a vote last week.

The chairman sets the board's agenda and serves as its figurehead and primary point of contact for the public and others. As a general rule, the chairman votes only when there's a tie between the other four commissioners.

Commissioner Lee Livingston — now entering his fourth year on the board — was offered the chairman’s job, but turned it down.

“I’ve got a super busy business year coming up and I just look at the extra work that the chairman takes on, so I chose to (decline),” Livingston explained. He'll serve as the commission's vice chairman for a second straight year.

French praised outgoing chairman Commissioner Joe Tilden for the “excellent job” he did in the position in 2015.

“We’ve enjoyed giving you a hard time from time-to-time,” French told him.

Tilden said it was fun and an "excellent experience.”
