County Commissioner Paulette Burdick made the appointment at Tuesday’s commission meeting.

Tolbert will fill the seat vacated by Joel Paige, the longtime general manager of the PGA National Resort & Spa. Paige resigned his position at PGA National last year and is now running his own consulting business.

County rules dictated that Paige’s seat on the tourism board must be filled by a hotelier. As a result, Paige resigned the post in January. He had served on the board for roughly 8 years.
