County. I am truly grateful for this opportunity and I

regret not being able to fulfill my term," she said.

Committee submitted the names of the applicants for

the position to the governor to appoint someone for the

position. Andrews said it is her understanding that only

one name was submitted for the job and that was

served in that capacity for 24 years, 19 in the associate

division and five years working in the circuit division.

residents of Oregon County for putting their trust in me.

The county has been good to me and my family,
