Welcome to our new Chamber Director, Dale McQueen. The Bonham Chamber of Commerce board voted to hire Dale to oversee the day-to-day functions of the chamber. In Dale's new role, he will work to bring not just the Bonham area together for a shared goal but the county as well. As a study done for Bonham in 1959 pointed out, whatever helps the county grow will also help Bonham grow.

Having lived in Bonham for over 25 years, Dale is eager to bring his experience and skills to the Bonham Chamber and help work to make the organization one of the best in the North Texas area. With a background in agriculture and chemistry, Dale will help bridge a great connection between the largest industry in Fannin County (agriculture), the existing businesses, and the future businesses of the area.

The release came from the Chamber and they are already making up stories, Dale has never lived in Bonham, good grief, seriously? Bonham should be scared to death!

It is said they hired him to run BEDCO out of the visitors center and run a few more people out of town that Tom Turner and his clan doesn't want around, he is nothing but a yes man for a small click group.

Also read somewhere that Multi-complex board and Chamber board had a joint meeting and they signed a contract that the Chamber will once again be doing the scheduling for the complex. Guess Bill Jones lost that job?

Wild Bill is gone. He finally sold his home and moved. Heard he moved to Mckinney or somewhere down in that area.

I've known Dale for 20+ Years, When I first met him he lived in the 1400 block of Cedar St., I think that counts as living in Bonham. That is all, now get back to your petty back stabbing and bickering, it always makes Bonham and Fannin County better.

Nothing else is working, may be just the answer to all the problems, don't think he could be any worse.

Don't worry about the Chamber, it will be just fine. You should be concerned about your city hall and all the ones that need to be replaced. But, you did not go to the polls and vote in the last election. We have the same old mayor for another 4 years. I think it's four, please correct me if wrong.

To have a new mayor, someone has to run against the current one. Doesn't matter it every voter turns out. No one wants to run against Roy.

Why, Mike? Roy has NOT done a thing for Bonham except hurt the growth. Look back on his terms in office and all the companies we have lost because he is not smart enough to keep them in Bonham or bring more in for new jobs, etc.- No one will run for mayor because of the mess going on with city politics. The officials don't even like each other, all are two faced, take sides with their friends. And no, all small towns are not like ours! Thanks, Mike for commenting in a desent way, unusual on this site.

You have a great point there!! All small towns are definitely not like Bonham. Our town has a serious power struggle going on. There are a bunch of people trying to make a name for themselves or thump their chests at the expense of our community. Wether it be by putting out a politically charged paper, writing slanted over opinionated "articles" (other places call it propaganda.) Or trying to hold on to what was though a strangle hold of the mayoral position. I think your right, there is to much of a mess there. There's no way I'd want that job! It would cost you a small fortune to get it. You have a battle EVERY day with the Turner/Ward/Burnett clan. Your job is NEVER done. Oh and the best part... You get payed beans!!

Yeah... Count me out.

I'm just glad someone had the good sense to change the photo on the chamber website. The previous pic showed a car in the foreground in serious disrepair and looking like it was destined for the scrap yard. One had to ask themselves if that was the image of Bonham they really wanted to be sent across the globe.... or if that was typical of the environment visitors could expect to see on every street corner here?-Hope not!

On Dale McQueen? don't you worry one bit; he'll run the chamber in the ground. He's got NO idea how to run one and will chase off businesses in droves. Why would someone pay to be smack talked? I'm not going to. I can run my business without Dale's help thank you very much.
