To the Citizens of Loudon County:
As many of you aware, I have accepted a position with my firm in Nashville, Tennessee.  Therefore, effective Monday, July 16, 2012, I am resigning my position as County Commissioner for the Second District, Seat B.
It has been my sincere honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Loudon County, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity that you have given me.  To everyone who has supported me, who has challenged me, and even those who have criticized me, I say thank you.  Each of you helped make me who I am.  Loudon County always has been and always will be a part of my life.
As you may know, Seat B for the Second District will now be placed on the November ballot.  I am happy to support Rosemary Quillen in her bid for that seat.
Thank you once more for the privilege and responsibility of serving you.


Austin Shaver
