James City County Deputy Attorney Leo P. Rogers has been named the recipient of the Local Government Attorneys of Virginia (LGA) 2004 Cherin Award.

 

Rogers was presented with this prestigious award on April 23 at LGA's Spring Conference in Roanoke. James City County Attorney Frank M. Morton, III, made the presentation at LGA's evening banquet.

 

The Cherin Award for an Outstanding Deputy or Assistant City, County or Town Attorney is presented to an attorney with at least 10 years of local government experience who has demonstrated distinguished service, the highest ethical and professional principles, and enhanced the image of local government attorneys in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

 

Leo Rogers has consistently distinguished himself by developing a profound knowledge and expertise in commercial transactions and economic development,” James City County Attorney Morton said. "On behalf of James City County, he has prepared comprehensive incentive agreements to lure and retain businesses for the County, including the development and approval of the County's Enterprise Zone and numerous other projects."

 

Rogers has been active in numerous Industrial Access Road Fund projects. He also served as Counsel for the County's first shell building development and sale, and developed a loan program for new or expanding industries and businesses. In addition, Rogers was instrumental in the County's acquisition of the 217-acre Mainland Farms, which is the oldest active farm in the United States.

 

Rogers, who has worked for James City County since 1990, is a member of LGA’s Board of Directors and chair of its Amicus Committee.
