Nelson To Retire

LCUB General Manager, Fred Nelson, announced at Monday's board meeting that he would be retiring as of January 22nd, 2010. Nelson has been with the utility for 43 years filling the position of general manager since 2004.

Rumors of Nelson's retirement had been circulating for several weeks. Also making the rumor mills is that Lenoir City Mayor, Matt Brookshire, Nelson's son-in-law, is likely to be named as his replacement. Time will tell.
