Anderson County Trustee Rodney Archer has been offered an executive director job with the County Officials Association of Tennessee, a press release said.
The County Officials Association of Tennessee promotes more efficient county government throughout all Tennessee counties, the press release said. It consists of members from county clerk, court clerk, register of deeds, and county trustee associations in the state.
“I am proud to have been offered the position of executive director of COAT, but I have not seen a contract or details, as I was only offered the position late last night,” Archer said in a press release Monday. “Once the details are laid out before me and I accept, the COAT board will meet on May 9 to approve my hiring. If the board approves my hiring, I would not assume my new role until later this summer. If all that occurs, then I will resign as trustee and provide for a smooth transition for whomever the county commission appoints as the new trustee. My goal in this process will be to leave the trustee’s office in the best possible hands possible for the people of Anderson County.”
If Archer accepts the position to lead COAT, Archer would be expected to direct training and guidance to county governments in an effort to replicate those successes across the state. [Read more…]
