ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Will the 3rd time be the charm in the search for a civic center director? The city manager named another best qualified candidate Monday, the third so far.

The first candidate turned down the job, while negotiations with the second fell through. Today, Timothy Mabe of Valdosta was named top choice.

"This is an individual who's been in the business frankly his entire life. He started in his teen years, his mother had started up an event arena in the North Carolina area, so this is all he's ever don, he's been a director in multiple event arenas around the country," said Wes Smith, Albany Assistant City Manager.

The position has been vacant since John Mazolla left in April. The city must wait 14 days before officially offering Mabe the job.
