Upon hearing the news of the appointments, Shelby Johnson, the state’s Geographic Information Officer, said “The choices Governor Hutchinson made to guide the work of the Board and this Office are excellent! They are more than qualified. Between the three of them we are probably adding 40 years of combined GIS experience.” With these three appointments, all 13 positions required by the Board’s enabling language become filled.
