City manager leads state association

April 13, 2006

Valdosta - A South Georgia city manager is chosen to lead other managers in Georgia.

Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson is the 2006 President of the Georgia City-County Management Association. The association is a professional development group made up of city and county managers from all over the state.

As president of the organization, Hanson says he'll be able to market Valdosta to communities across Georgia. "It certainly gives our city some notoriety of having a professional leading the state wide organization, and that gives Valdosta some name recognition out there," said Hanson. 

Hanson served as secretary of the Georgia City-County Management Association in 2004, and was vice president of the group last year.
