Cobb County Manager Says Thanks, But No Thanks to Running Fulton County Government

And quite frankly, I don't blame him for taking a pass on working with Emma Darnell and Bill Edwards.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports the County Manager of Cobb County withdrew his name from consideration for the same job in neighboring Fulton County.

Cobb Board of Commissioners Chairman Tim Lee said David Hankerson contacted Fulton officials on Monday to let them know he was no longer interested in the job.

“Mr. Hankerson just informed me that he has informed the Fulton County Board of Commissioners that he has officially withdrawn his name from consideration of the county manager’s job of Fulton County,” Lee said Tuesday evening. “He just felt that he’s better served here, and he loves Cobb County, and this is where he needs to be. This is his home, so he wants to stay here and finish his career in Cobb.”
