• County manager announces upcoming retirement
By Linda Green

Don Norton

On July 31, McDuffie County will say goodbye to its county manager.
Don Norton, 65, who has held the position for 11 years, announced his retirement Tuesday evening to the McDuffie County Board of Commissioners.
“I have been in county government for about 35 years and overall working for 40 something years, which includes six years in state government in West Virginia. I have been doing this a long time and I feel like it is time to do something else,” he said. “I want to spend some time with the grandkids, do a little boating and play a little golf,” Norton said after the commission meeting. “Our immediate plans are to stay in McDuffie County.”
The commission will begin the process of replacing Norton and allow some time for possible overlap between Norton and his successor for training about county operations.
