Key to manage five departments and 96 employees.
Several veteran public administration officials in Macon County, including Wilma Anderson and Evelyn Southard, decided to retire or leave their positions with the county in 2011. This left county manager Jack Horton scrambling to fill the huge void left by their absences. When Macon County lost its emergency services director, Warren Cabe, to the Town of Franklin last summer, Horton did not have to worry too much about finding a viable replacement for him.
On Thursday, Dec. 22, Macon County announced the hiring of David Key, who has served as interim director of Macon County’s Emergency Management Services since early August 2011, to officially replace former EMS Director, Warren Cabe.
