Sellers named interim county manager
The Clay County Commissioners have hired Jackie Sellers as interim Clay County manager to fill departing Paul Leek’s position until a permanent replacement can be chosen.
Sellers, who teaches in the College of Engineering at the University of Georgia, is also the local pastor at Ledford’s Chapel United Methodist Church in Hayesville.
His name surfaced as a possible candidate during executive session during the previous week’s called meeting of the board. He was chosen unanimously at the commission’s regular Thursday evening board meeting. He will work as an independent contractor and expects to be on the job after June 30, when his classes are over.
