ROCKINGHAM — “It’s been a good trip,” outgoing Commissioner Thad Ussery said during a reception in his honor Monday afternoon.

A swarm of family members, county employees and friends came out to the Richmond County Airport to wish him well hours before his final meeting.

“He has been a good asset to Richmond County,” Webb said.
