Join Brighton McConnell every Tuesday afternoon for Chatham County Roundup, a recurring series that shines the spotlight on Chatham County through engaging discussions and interviews with locals, newsmakers, officials and more. 

This week on Chatham County Roundup, join 97.9 The Hill’s Brighton McConnell and Chatham County Commissioner Karen Howard for a discussion about how Chatham is moving into 2021, from vaccine distribution plans and local efforts to inoculate vulnerable populations to how education is proceeding  in a changing landscape of remote learning and continual adaption to new struggles and problems.

“You know, Chatham is a fast-growing county and we are, we are facing a lot of the challenges that the surrounding counties, Orange and Wake,  face with regard to growth and a little bit of pressure on our infrastructure,” said Howard.
