November 27--  The Toombs County commission is expected to hire an accounting and financial manager from the private sector to be the new Toombs County manager.

The Commission announced Tuesday it would vote at its December 11th meeting on the hiring of 55-year-old John Jones from Eastman to succeed Doug Eaves who resigned earlier this year.

Commissioner Jeff McCormick and outgoing Commisisoner Louie Powell along with incoming Commission Chairman Blake Tillery and newly elected commissioners Wendell Dixon and Darriel Nobles were on the search committee.

McCormick says 45 people applied for the job and the committee narrowed it down to eight for interviews.

ImageJones has been the Controller for Bearden Oil Company in Eastman since 1993.  He graduated with a business degree in accounting from Valdosta State in 1980 and passed the CPA exam in 1987.  He's also held jobs in banking, business services and international business.

He's a former Deacon at the Eastman First Baptist and a past President of the Eastman Kiwanis Club.  He and his wife Holly have been married 29 years and have three grown children.
