Commissioner Quits
He wanted to avoid a conflict with business and government, so he tendered his resignation to the Unicoi County commission and to the planning commission. Doug Bowman gave commissioners a letter that said effective immediately he would resign from the board. Bowman cited that it seemed to some to be a conflict for his family business, Bowman and Sons Construction, to be able to bid on what little construction work available in Unicoi County. In 2010 this same issue was raised when the former commissioner was part of an investigation into whether or not it was ethical for him to serve on the commission while his company did work for the county. All work done by the company was awarded to them through a bid process. Bowman says there are others that are more qualified than he is to represent the first district. Bowman did not attend the rest of the meeting after giving his resignation. (CC)
