“I really love what I do,” said Thompson. “I hope I’ve provided great service to Lowndes County but also the citizens of Lowndes County also. I’m looking forward to closing this chapter and starting a new one in my life, and it’s been a pleasure to get to meet all the people this last thirty years.”
