Clovis Reed, Rankin County's Administrator, announced his retirement at the Monday meeting of The Board of Supervisors.

The details.

For Immediate Release
December 5, 2011


County Administrator, Clovis Reed announced he will be retiring at the end of December.  Having served a total of 6 years with the Rankin County Board of Supervisors, Reed has reached his 25 year mark in the state retirement system (PERS). Reed is leaving county government to join the firm of Stone Adams Financial Partners as Principal.

Reed stated "I have enjoyed serving as County Administrator and working with the Board of Supervisors. Much has been accomplished with infrastructure, building projects and working to meet the needs of our citizens, in one of the fastest growing counties in the state. Reed added, "Having reached this milestone in my career, I am looking forward to entering the private sector. 

Working with Nick Walters, whom I have known and admired for many years and becoming a part of the Stone Adams team seems like such a natural fit. Getting the opportunity to work with counties and municipalities across the state, and utilizing the skills I enjoy the most is an opportunity I am excited about."

President of the Rankin County Board of Supervisors, Jared Morrison added, "The Board appreciates the leadership, support and contributions Clovis has provided to us. We respect his decision to retire, having been a public servant for 25 years, and certainly understand the opportunity he has been offered in the private sector, still we will miss him."

In addition to serving as Administrator, Reed also served as Assistant Director for the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality from 2004-2007, and as County Administrator in DeSoto, Claiborne and Simpson counties. Clovis served as a member of the State Wireless Communications Commission and was Chair of the Cellular Service Committee that negotiated the current state-wide contract.

Most recently, Clovis was honored to be selected by Governor- Elect Phil Bryant to serve on his Transition Regulatory Policy Committee.

If you think Greg Wilcox is the only board member catering to Gary Rhodes you are sadly mistaken.... Also I think Greg does a wonderful job managing the Flowood Parks and Rec as well as representing the residents of district 3. He works tirelessly on both and I assure you he works 3 times the hours a week you do anon. We have so many elected officials that don't care to represent their constituents, and you choose the hardest working supervisor and attack him? If I didn't know any better I'd think your name was Ken Martin....
