RUTHERFORD COUNTY, N.C. — On Friday N.C. House Rep. Carla Cunningham introduced Jerry Wease, a clinical supervisor with RHA Health Services, before a packed room of friends, coworkers, and family at the RC Administration Building. Governor Roy Cooper had appointed Wease as a commissioner with the NC Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services in August, 2018. After listing Jerry’s certifications and numerous community involvements Rep. Cunningham concluded, “I’ll be honored to serve alongside Jerry Wease.”
NC Court of Appeals Judge John Arrowood swore Wease in at the morning event while Wease’s mother Rueleen held the Bible. Afterwards a reception was held to celebrate the state appointment.
Wease offered thanks to his friends, coworkers, dignitaries and family:
