Allegood as Cobb Commission Chair?

Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood could possibly be a candidate for next year’s race for Cobb Commission chairman, says the Marietta Daily Journal.

Could Tommy Allegood, Mayor of the , be the next Cobb County Board of Commissioners chairman? The Marietta Daily Journal speculates on that possibility Tuesday while looking for someone strong to step up against what’s seen as a weak field led by incumbent Tim Lee (parallels to the Republican presidential field, perhaps?).

Take our Patch poll to let us and the mayor know whether he should take his talents to Marietta Square, and use the comment space to explain your vote.

What exactly does the chairman do? Would he still be the mayor of Acworth? More info, please...

Tamara, the chairman is a County-level elected official/leader who oversees the Board the Commissioners. Cobb County operates under a commission-county manager system of government, with the Board of Commissioners leading policy decision making, and the "chairman" leading the board, which has 4 commissioners representing 4 districts in Cobb County. Acworth is in District One. For more information, visit the county government website - http://portal.cobbcountyga.gov/
