Board of Commissioners

Board of Commissioners

The Liberty County Commissioners and their districts are as follows:


Donald Lovette, Chairman

My family has lived in the Taylors Creek community for generations.  My entrance into politics came as a result of a letter I sent to the Editor encouraging changes and seeing those changes in an election process. I have celebrated proud moments include being a participant in the naming of schools for African American leaders in education and awarded the Mentor of the Year Award by the Transcenders of the Eleven Black Men of Liberty County.



Marion Stevens, Sr – District 1

A native of Liberty County, veteran of the U.S. Army, graduate from Gupton-Jones College, and served 34 years as a certified Fire Fighter and Medical Responder.  I was married for 37 years to the late Carolyn B. Stevens and am the proud father of 3 children and grandfather to 5 grandchildren.  "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." Ephesians 6:11



Justin L. Frasier – District 2 

A Liberty County native, my family and I are members of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church.  Currently, serving as Chairman of Young Democrats of Liberty County; Vice Chairman of the Hinesville Development Authority; Vice Chairman of the Regional Water Resource Council; and serve on ACCG state boards. I attended Morris Brown College, University of Georgia, and Savannah State University, and employed at Interstate Paper.  The son of the Honorable Charles Frasier and Mrs. Shirley Frasier, I’m the proud father of two children.



Connie Thrift – District 3 

I was born and raised in Liberty County and chose to raise my two sons in this wonderful place.  Driven to politics by a passion to make a difference, I was encouraged by a high school teacher who believed in me at a young age.  Reading and being actively involved in my church are a large part of my life.



Pat Bowen – District 4 

Father of 4 children, my family has called Fleming, Georgia home for more than 52 years.  I proudly graduated Bradwell High School. Like most country boys, I enjoy spending time with my family, hunting, fishing, and watching all types of sports. My family is proud to be members of Mt. Olivet United Methodist Church.



Gary Gilliard – District 5 

I was born on Fort Stewart Ga and attended the public schools of Liberty County graduating from Bradwell Institute in 1974. I was raised in government housing on Rebecca Street where I joined First Calvary Missionary Baptist Church at an early age and where I serve as President of our Capital Stewardship Campaign. I serve on The HAMPO Policy Committee, The Liberty County Athletic Hall of Fame Selection Committee and President\CEO of Seven Ministries of Liberty County, a 501c3 faith-based community organization. My wife Felecia is a first-grade teacher and we have two children and a granddaughter.  I believe giving back to the community in which one lives is important and being a commissioner affords me that opportunity.



Eddie J. Walden, Vice Chairman – District 6

My family has lived in Liberty County since mid-1950.  I graduated from Liberty County School System, and now my wife works as a teacher at LCHS.  My father worked as a councilman for the city of Hinesville, becoming my inspiration.  He always said “the easiest thing to do is nothing” to be involved and try to make a difference.  Government is not for the wealthy or retired, if you feel you have something to offer, then offer yourself first.
