He noted that there is always room for improvement and he is committed to working with others to make Washington Parish a better place to live, raise a family, work and retire.

Posey is married to Minnie Shelton Posey. They have five children, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He is a charter member of Hillcrest Baptist Church, where he serves on the Board of Deacons, as a director of the Upward Basketball Program and as a substitute Sunday school teacher.
