Bristol man serves as wildlife commission chair

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey said Bristol dentist Jeff McMillin has been elected chairman of the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission.

The commission works with state lawmakers to provide direction and oversight to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. He was appointed to the commission by Ramsey in 2009 and elected chairman during the commission's meeting this month.

Ramsey said in a statement that McMillin has a deep love of the outdoors and is the perfect person to oversee the TWRA's mission of conservation and preservation of Tennessee's fish and wildlife.
