Hall County Administrator continuing service elsewhere in the state

Hall County Administrator Randy Knighton is resigning from his post and is expected to be named a sole finalist for a similar position at another jurisdiction elsewhere in the state.

Knighton began his career with Hall County Government in 2002 when he was hired as a Senior Planner.  He was subsequently hired as Planning Director before being appointed County Administrator in July 2011.

“I have sincerely appreciated the opportunity to serve the citizens of Hall County for the past several years,” Knighton said.  “During my tenure, I have experienced the benefits of working with wonderful citizens, committed staff and elected officials to accomplish many goals which will benefit the County for years to come.”

Significant milestones accomplished during Knighton’s tenure include the development of the Hall County Government Scholars Academy, the establishment of the County’s Organizational Values, the continuation of the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) program and the organization of the first SPLOST Citizen Review Committee, moving numerous County departments under one roof at the Hall County Government Center and the successful negotiation of the Service Delivery Strategy Agreement earlier this year. 

“These successes could only be realized through the hard work of staff, insight of elected officials and support of Hall County citizens,” said Knighton.

Hall County Board of Commissioners Chairman Richard Higgins offered words of gratitude for Knighton’s leadership and wished him well in his future endeavors.

“Randy has passionately served the citizens of this community for a number of years, and we can’t thank him enough for his dedication to the growth and development of Hall County,” Higgins said.  “We wish him the best of luck as he continues his career in local government service.”

Knighton will continue in his role as Hall County Administrator for a period of time prior to his departure to ensure an appropriate transition of leadership.
