MEDIA ADVISORY: Linn County Board of Supervisors to Discuss Naming the New Public Health and Child and Youth Development Services Building


Sounds like the discussion is over and the decision has been made on naming the building after Dr. Percy and Lileah Harris. I agree with the decision.

You can read about the lives of Dr. Harris here and of Mrs. Harris’ here. Search www.thegazette.com if you want to read more stories about them.

I met them both. They were unique contributors to our community. We are a better place because of them. -Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
