Sherry Brown leaves a legacy of service Featured

Last week in the Jackson County Commissioners’ Meeting Room Sherry Brown, long-time tax collector, said good bye to her friends in a quiet reception, complete with finger foods, punch, and plenty of opportunities for her to remember and to talk, one-on-one.

Brown, a forty-year veteran of the tax collector’s office, related her pride in providing services to county citizens, services that often went beyond that strictly required by law.  “We have seen to it that the office is also a convenience to people, a place that they can come to and expect assistance in personal needs, like hunting and fishing licenses and permits required by state agencies, a one-stop office that saves them a few miles and perhaps some valuable time,” she  related.  “I am glad that we have moved in that direction during my time”.

The TIMES Publisher, Editor and Staff gives to Sherry A. Brown, Tax Collector, a hearty “Well Done” for operating an exemplary constitutional office for the people of Jackson County.
