McKee Named Forsyth County Manager

The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners named David McKee as county manager during a special called work session on Dec. 9. McKee, named on Nov. 23 as one of two finalists for the position, is slated to begin his new role with Forsyth County government Dec. 16 following the departure of current County Manager Kevin Tanner.

“David brings a wealth of leadership qualities and understanding of the County’s needs to the position,” said Chairman and District 2 Commissioner Alfred John. “The board looks forward to working with him in his new role.”

McKee has served in the position of assistant county manager since April 2021. In the role, McKee has overseen operations of the County’s Engineering, Recycling & Solid Waste, Fleet Services, Water & Sewer, Public Transportation and Public Facilities departments. He also has served as the executive manager for all transportation related activities and responsibilities and is the County’s key contact with the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Before joining Forsyth County, McKee served in various roles in Dawson County since 2006, working in environmental compliance, engineering, GIS and planning. He also served as Dawson County’s Public Works Director and SPLOST Administrator.

McKee holds a bachelor’s degree in Geology from Georgia Southern University. He has attained an Advanced Certificate of Public Works Management from the University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government and American Public Works Association.

“I am very pleased that David will be assuming the role of county manager,” said Tanner. “There are a lot of good things happening here in Forsyth County and I have full confidence that David’s expertise, leadership and well-rounded knowledge of County operations will continue to advance the Board’s vision for the County well into the future.”

Tanner announced his departure from the position in mid-November after accepting the position of Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Commissioner. Tanner served as Forsyth County Manager since Jan. 2021.

The mission of the County Manager's Office is to manage day-to-day operations of the county on behalf of the Chairman and Board of Commissioners, to ensure that tax dollars are spent and accounted for in a responsible manner and to respond to the needs and concerns of the citizens of Forsyth County.
