Rutherford County may soon have a deputy mayor. The position is called the chief administrative assistant. Rutherford County Commissioners are looking into the idea that would pay the assistant $80,000 annually.
As you may realize, the county mayor position is elected and the deputy mayor position would be hired by the county human resource department and the mayor.
Some of the minimum requirements of the proposed deputy mayor include that the candidate have a bachelor’s degree in business administration, management, finance or business law. A masters degree is preferred and the position requires that the candidate have at least 10-years experience in business or public administration.
