County Connections - David Terry

Name: David Terry

Department: Veteran Services Agency 

Job Title: Director

How long have you been with Livingston County? 7 years

What’s your favorite part of your job? Witnessing the satisfaction of a veteran or surviving family member receive their earned benefits, especially when it's not expected.

If you had to bring one movie, one book and one album to a desert island, which ones would you pick? Book: "The Heart Mender: A Story of Second Chances" by Andy Andrews and I'm stoked my favorite book is slated to be a major motion picture too. Movie: "Die Hard" with Bruce Willis, you know - the Christmas movie one! Album: Mike Warnke, "Hey Doc!"

Hot dog preference: red hot or white hot? Sahlen's Skinless Red Hot with homemade relish and mustard

Best place in the County to relax? I have two: The Livingston County Veteran Monument and strolling the trails through Al Lorenz Park

What’s something unique about you people would never guess just by looking at you? I have only one professional hit to my name with three at bats in a very short lived baseball career. So I like to say I have a lifetime professional batting average of .333, but at least I have one.
