December 23, 1987 — An era ended at the last Page County Board of Supervisors meeting. Roy Comer of District 5 attended his last regular meeting and closed out a five-term, 20-year stint as the representative from the county’s southernmost district.

“It really doesn’t seem like it’s been 20 years, I’ll tell you that,” he said Monday afternoon at the Shell station his family operates in Shenandoah.

Comer, a Republican, was defeated in November’s elections by Robert P. Good, a Democrat.

After the supervisors meeting Dec. 14, Comer was presented a plaque commemorating his two decades of service. Comer never missed a meeting while he served as a supervisor.
