The woman who will soon be Albany's City Manager said she's excited to get to work here.
Sharon Subadan said she's honored and humbled that city commissioners voted unanimously last night to hire her.
She hopes to help maximize Albany's potential and create a sense of teamwork in the community.
Subadan has worked in the public sector for 25-years and says she's ready to listen and learn.
"I think first I need to listen and learn and become part of the community and to learn and understand the culture and become a part of the change going forward,”
Subadan was demoted twice and her current job with Hillsborough County, Florida is being eliminated.
She said she worked hard to fix a homeless recovery program after an audit showed problems and the homeless count in the county is down 30-percent since.
She hopes to start work in Albany within 30 days.
