Elon town government: new faces, old (experienced) hands

The town of Elon has some new faces in some of the municipality’s top spots, but they’re old hands when it comes to experience.

Among changes within the town’s staff are a new fire chief, Landon Massey.  Massey spent the last 16 years with the E.M. Holt Fire Department where he was most recently deputy chief of operations and training.
