Since becoming County Manager of Cherokee County in April 2001, Jerry has received recognition for leadership, transparency and ethics in government, and fiscal stewardship. As the County's Chief Operating Officer, Jerry is responsible for the leadership and management of an organization with over 1,400 employees and an annual budget of over $200 million.
