Commissioner George Teal named Chair of the Board of Douglas County Commissioners

Posted on January 9, 2024 2024News and Events


Effective Tuesday, Jan. 9, Commissioner George Teal will serve as Chair of the Board of Douglas County Commissioners. Previous Chair, Commissioner Abe Laydon, will serve as Vice Chair. Both roles were voted upon as part of an official Commissioner work session.

Commissioner Teal was elected in November 2020 and began serving his first term in January 2021. He represents District II. Prior to being elected Douglas County Commissioner, Teal served six years on the Castle Rock Town Council. Read his bio online.

“It’s been my honor and privilege to serve the hard-working families and businesses of Douglas County as Commissioner,” Teal said. “Over the last three years, I’ve experienced first-hand the difference we can make when we work together, both internally and with our community partners. I am excited about the year ahead.”

Teal, Laydon and Commissioner Lora Thomas make up the three-member Board of County Commissioners – the main policy-making body in Douglas County. Commissioners are elected at large from one of three districts in the County to serve four-year terms. Leadership roles are voted upon by the majority.
