Nash CountyNash County Board of Commissioners consists of seven members only one of whom is black, while 38% of the county, as a whole, is African American. In order to be fully represented, the African American population would require one more African American Commissioner. Commissioners are elected from specified districts in staggered elections to four-year terms. Many of the towns within Nash County are relatively small: seven out of ten have populations of less than 1,000, while the three largest ñ Sharpsburg, Red Oak and Nashville ñ all have populations of less than 4,000. Therefore while the county as whole could benefit from a workshop, none of the individual cities are large enough to attract a substantial audience.
