Hall County is moving forward with hiring a full-time Elections Superintendent.
“The Elections Board and I are committed to making sure the implementation of an Elections Superintendent is a smooth transition,” Hall County Board of Elections Chairman Dr. Tom Smiley said. “We look forward to working with that individual as the board moves our attention toward addressing broad policy issues.”
Hall County Human Resources Director Bill Moats has been overseeing the department since the resignation of former Elections Superintendent Charlotte Sosebee in November 2016. Since that time, County officials have been evaluating the structure of the department and the needs of the community before moving forward with hiring a replacement.
“Bill and the entire Elections Department staff have done an outstanding job of making sure that the election process works seamlessly,” Hall County Administrator Jock Connell said. “As we’ve had the opportunity to review the operations of the department, we have decided that it does warrant a full-time superintendent, solely devoted to all functions related to a successful election process.”
Connell said the County’s growth—that which has already been realized and that which is projected to occur—necessitates the need for the position.
“We feel confident that this is the best route to take in order to best meet the needs of the electorate and place the emphasis on this function which it deserves,” he said.
