Albany-- Has a new city manager been hired with a handshake?
We can't know the answer to that question, because legally, the city commission can't announce that they've hired someone for two weeks.
But it looks like Alfred D. Lott will need to find a home in Albany.
In an exclusive interview with WALB, Lott says that he told his current employer, the City of Takoma Park, Maryland, that he was offered the Albany job, and plans to take it. Lott was the Public Works Director there.
Lott was educated at Central Texas University, and Tuskegee. He has an extensive military career, having served at Ft. Benning and Ft. Rucker, and in Europe. He is also a reconnaissance helicopter pilot.
Lott was a strategic planner for the Pentagon in 1997, and was the Army Public Affairs Chief for Los Angeles from 1993 to 1997.
He was the Assistant City Manager in College Park, Maryland, which has only 24,000 permanent residents, and his last post was as Public Works Director of Takoma Maryland, which has only 17,000 residents.
The commission picked Al Lott from a list of five candidates they interviewed earlier this month.
