Jerry Brabander New Excise Equalization Board Member
On March 7, 2016, Jerry Brabander was sworn in as the newest member of the Grant County Excise/Equalization Board by Max Hess, Chairman of the Board of Grant County Commissioners. Jerry was appointed by Fourth Judicial District Judges, Paul K. Woodward, Dennis W. Hladik and Justin P. Eilers on March 1, 2016, to replace Melvin McFeeters who retired from the Board.
Jerry grew up on a farm southeast of Deer Creek in eastern Grant County and graduated from Deer Creek High School in 1969. He received a B.S. in Agricultural Ecology from Northwestern Oklahoma State University in 1974 and a M.S. in Wildlife Ecology from Oklahoma State University in 1977. While furthering his education, Jerry worked summers and weekends on the family farm and “dabbled” in carpentry.
From 1978 until his retirement in 2008, Jerry worked in various positions with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, including stints in Oklahoma, Washington, DC, Nebraska and Missouri. The last 14 years of his career, Jerry supervised the Service’s Tulsa office. His proudest accomplishments are in connection with the Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, a voluntary, landowner-driven program focused on wetland, stream and grassland restoration.
Following retirement in October 2008, Jerry and his wife, Dinah, set about building their home and managing the family farm southeast of Deer Creek. Jerry also serves on the Board of Directors for Land Legacy, a state-wide land trust, the Council of Wheatland RC&D, and is a sales associate for the Cross Timbers Land real estate firm. Dinah is a Registered Nurse. Both enjoy “building things” whether at home, on the farm, at church, or in the community through their “Deer Creek Pasture Specialists.” Jerry and Dinah have four children and six grandchildren. They are active in the Nardin United Methodist Church.
