Community bids farewell to ATI President

January 25, 2007

Albany -- The community says goodbye to a prominent Albany leader who was the driving force advancing downtown development.

Albany Tommorow President and CEO Tommy Chatmon's farewell party at Bethel AME Church included singing tributes, a slideshow of projects he helped accomplish, and many people thanking him for his work.

Some projects Chatmon was key in developing during his nine-year tenure include the Flint RiverQuarium and Law Enforcement Center.

"It's humbling when so many fine people, friends, and associates from a lifetime actually take the time to come and express themselves like this. Just with their presence and words and thoughts and prayers. It's overwhelming and it's uplifting," said outgoing ATI president Tommy Chatmon.

"He's devoted his talents, his life to this effort. He's going to be hard to replace," said Chatmon colleague Tim Martin.

Chatmon accepted a position as executive director of the Downtown Development board of the Community Redevelopment Agency in Orlando, Florida. His last day at ATI is February 2nd.
