Her retirement plans include “taking it easy at home and a little traveling.” Nelson said it had been a “pleasure to work for the election commission and to serve the community.”

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Thank you for always being there to help me (and WLAF) over the years, Carole Jo, and I greatly appreciate your patience when I’ve called or stopped by two or threes in the same day – Jim Freeman.
