Ashe commissioners did not look too far in filling the position of County Manager—but made that choice in a split decision.  In the 4-1 vote yesterday afternoon, Ashe Commissioners appointed Pat Mitchell as the new Ashe County Manager, effective yesterday. Mitchell had been serving as interim manager since Dan McMillan resigned at the end of July. His severance package paid him through the end of 2011.  The board met in executive session yesterday morning, then took the vote in the afternoon open session.
