Best wishes to Tom Gar­rett

The Covington News - - OPINION -

This past week it was an­nounced that Tom Gar­rett, the cur­rent New­ton County Manager will be step­ping down to take a po­si­tion with Barrow County.

Be­fore he was ap­pointed to the County Manager po­si­tion Gar­rett was in in charge of trans­porta­tion in the county.

When Gar­rett was ap­pointed to the County Manager job he ac­tu­ally took on a po­si­tion that through no fault of his own was des­tined not to suc­ceed.

It is un­for­tu­nate that Gar­rett was never given the full op­por­tu­nity to suc­ceed here be­cause in our deal­ings with him we found him to be hon­or­able and ca­pa­ble; much more so then the elected and ap­pointed of­fi­cials that he an­swered to.

We wish him well in his new as­sign­ment in Barrow we have no doubt that he will suc­ceed in his new po­si­tion as Public Works Direc­tor.
