LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County's top prospect for county manager, Roger Desjarlais, said Wednesday he struck a deal with Commission Chair Cecil Pendergrass, verbally outlining terms of pay and benefits.

According to our partners at the News-Press, Desjarlais said he preferred to let his prospective boss speak about the deal.

Assuming Lee’s headhunter completes a background check, Desjarlais said, commissioners could vote on approving a contract Tuesday.
