ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Lee County Commissioners now have a list of the top eight candidates to take over as Lee County Administrator.

The Mercer Group, a consulting firm hired to help with the selection process narrowed down the list from more than 40 applicants.

The list includes applicants from Georgia and as far away as Minnesota. Commissioners are going over a binder full of background information on the candidates including their resumes and a questionnaire that provides some insight into the applicants and their philosophies.

"They asked things like, list some of the accomplishments your most proud of, and of course they limit how many you can respond to. I think it was six of the most proudest accomplishments. Talk about difficulties you've had in the past and how you've resolved those difficulties," said Lee County Commissioner Rick Muggridge.

Commissioners hope to discuss the candidates in an executive session following their meeting next week. They don't expect to make a selection before the first of the year.
