ALBANY, GA (WALB) - City leaders held a reception at the Government Center tonight to welcome Subadan.
She has worked in the public sector for 25 years most recently for Hillsborough County, Florida.
She says part of being a good leader is being a good listener and says she's ready to move the city forward by honoring the commitments in the new budget.
"We're going to be very quickly implementing it, July 1st is going to be the beginning of our fiscal year, so from a fiscal perspective we want to make sure that we honor the commitments that we've made in our budget and we'll be working hard on that," said Sharon Subadan, Albany City Manager.
Subadan says she's also excited to work with the commission and community on downtown redevelopment.
