​Wake County Board of Commissioners Elects Chair, Vice Chair

Each will serve a one-year term in these leadership roles

The Wake County Board of Commissioners has new leadership. At its regular meeting Monday, Dec. 4, the board elected Jessica Holmes as its chair and Sig Hutchinson as its vice chair.

Holmes and Hutchinson were both elected to the Board of Commissioners in 2014, and Hutchinson served as chair of the board in 2017. Each will serve a one-year term in these new leadership roles.

“I’m honored to lead this dedicated group of commissioners as we work together to tackle important issues in our community,” Holmes said. “I look forward to spending the next year making progress on many fronts, including behavioral health, food security, affordable housing and education.”

The Wake County Board of Commissioners is made up of seven members elected by voters countywide. The commissioners enact policies such as establishment of the property tax rate, regulation of land use and zoning outside municipal jurisdictions, and adoption of the annual budget.

The current board has established eight strategic goal areas and objectives to help guide the county’s funding decisions, project prioritization and resource usage: Community Health; Economic Strength; Education; Great Government; Growth and Sustainability; People, Arts and Culture; Public Safety; and Social and Economic Vitality.
