Tifton--  He won't officially be the Mayor of Tifton until next year but Jamie Cater is already getting a head start.

Cater sat in on Monday night's Tifton City Council work session but members voted to exclude him from a closed executive session.

Cater says issues discussed in executive session could be voted on once he takes office so he should have been included.  Before a unanimous vote, city council members said that wouldn't be proper protocol.

But the future mayor says he is ready to make some changes for Tifton. Cater says he wants to improve lines of communication, give citizens more of a voice and improve Tifton's business atmosphere.

"We've lost over 1,000 jobs. That concerns me. We need to be more business friendly," said Cater.

Cater will officially be sworn-in in January.
