ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission interim president Justin Strickland is one step away from having the job permanently.

The EDC's presidential search committee voted to recommend Strickland for the job at a meeting Tuesday morning.

Commission chair Jay Smith says he will soon schedule a meeting for the full commission to approve Strickland's hiring.

Strickland has been with the EDC for seven years.

When approved, he will succeed Ted Clem who left in January for a job in Alabama.
