Longtime tax department employee Nancy Freeman was appointed Tax Administrator on Tuesday by the Orange County Board of Commissioners. Freeman replaces Duane Brinson, who resigned in the spring to take a similar position in Durham County.
Freeman is a graduate of East Carolina University with a degree in Special Education. She started in Orange County in the Revenue Department in December 1997. Prior to joining the county, she worked with Hillsborough Savings Bank.
“I’m a native of Orange County, so this is important to me,” said Freeman. “This is more than a job. It’s my home, and I want to do the best I can for my fellow residents of Orange County.”
Freeman assumed the role of Interim Tax Administrator effective Aug. 3, 2019.
Chair Penny Rich and Commissioners Mark Marcoplos and Jamezetta Bedford participated in the selection process.
