A total of 10 have been interviewed for chamber of commerce position

The Grady County Joint Development Authority heard an update from JDA Executive Director Chadd Mathis Tuesday on his progress in finding a replacement for Executive Vice President Jennifer Majors who resigned in October.
Mathis told authority members that he has interviewed eight candidates and had two more interviews scheduled for Tuesday.
“I will narrow the field to four or five and bring them before the interview committee and hopefully make a hire after the first of the year,” Mathis said.
JDA Chairman Charles M. Stafford and Vice Chairman Robbie Burns will represent the authority on the interview committee. Other members will include current and incoming officers of the Cairo-Grady County Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber Executive Secretary Carol Lehman previously announced her plans to resign and will work through the end of December.
Mathis said that he intends on bringing in a Work Based Learning student from Cairo High School to man the chamber and authority office from lunch until 5 p.m.
“This may be permanent or temporary depending on how we define Jennifer’s former position and Carol’s,” Mathis said.
Authority member Eugene Maddox asked how the office would be covered in the morning hours and Mathis said that he would be responsible for the front office from 8:30 a.m. until noon each day.
