THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The city of Thomasville has a new mayor.

City council members unanimously elected members Camille Payne as mayor and Max Beverly as mayor pro tem at its Monday meeting.

But the job isn't new to Payne. She served as the mayor of Thomasville for four years in the early 1990s. Payne says she's happy to be back in the seat.

"It's always interesting. You get to see the overall view," says Payne. "Of course, all council members should keep up with what's going on in their departments. And so, as mayor, you get to see it all."

Mayor Payne already has several projects she'd like to see accomplished during her term. First on the agenda is a pedestrian and traffic enhancement project on Madison Street in downtown Thomasville.
