Honest • Hardworking • Homegrown Conservative
Hello, my name is Jerry Becker and I have been honored since 2014 to serve you as your County Commissioner in Sumner County's District 21.
As a lifelong resident of Hendersonville, I have seen, first-hand, the growth that Sumner County has had over the years. I am excited to have this opportunity to contribute to the future growth of this great county.
I believe that the foundation of great growth is the education system. Without a strong foundation, the full potential of growth will not be realized. We need to focus on becoming more attractive to businesses looking to relocate to the Middle Tennessee area, as well as to entrepreneurs looking to start up a business.
Growing up in District 21, I attended Indian Lake Elementary School and graduated from Hendersonville High School. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from The University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and work in the Project Management Office within our Information Technology (IT) department at Bridgestone Americas' Headquarters in downtown Nashville.
My wife, Stacey (Youree), attended Nannie Berry Elementary School and is a graduate of HHS, as well. She also attended UTK, where she earned her Nursing degree and has worked at Vanderbilt Hospital for over 20 years.
Stacey and I live in The Meadows of Indian Lake subdivision and have two sons who attend(ed) Sumner County Schools; William and John both previously attended Indian Lake Elementary and Ellis Middle School. William is a graduate from Hendersonville High School and is a Freshman at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville, while John is a Sophomore at HHS. Stacey is a Past-President of both the ILE PTO and the Ellis PTO. We attend the Community Church of Hendersonville. (Please check out the December 2013 issue of the Indian Lake Peninsula Living to learn more about our family.)
Both of my parents began their careers as teachers and my brother is currently a high school principal. My dad served on the Sumner County School Board for 18 years from 1988-2006, so Education has always been important to our family.
My parents and grandparents instilled in me the importance of being a public servant and giving back to the community in which we live, and I am honored to serve you as your County Commissioner.
I want to make sure that Sumner County is a place where my children want to raise their families when they get older. Focusing on education and economic development are the keys in order to do so.
I am humbled and honored to serve you as your County Commissioner, and I am excited to be working together with you to make Sumner County as strong and prosperous as it can be!
