ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Lee County's new administrator is on the job. County administrator Tony Massey started Monday.

Tuesday, he told us he plans to spend the week visiting the county's various offices to meet employees. He says he wants to help Lee County continue to grow and feels his 25-years of experience in local government prepared him do that.

"There's a lot of thing out there that we're going to be involved in and I'm trying to get my arms around it as quickly as I can so I can be able to participate and contribute as soon as possible. There's a lot of projects, road projects and we've got the referendum coming up in March," said Lee County Administrator Tony Massey.

That's a renewal of the special local option sales tax. Commissioners described their new administrator as a good communicator with experience with economic development and budget control.
