Jackson County supervisor says he co-owns land in Lake George area

Jackson County Board of Supervisors President Barry Cumbest said he and members of his family are among those who own land in the area of a twin-lake project called Lake George…

…Cumbest has been the point man on this project for the supervisors, and last year went to Washington with George County representatives to seek funding for Lake George.

If the project is built, the Jackson County portion would be in his district, which includes most of unincorporated north Jackson County.
