Commissioners not releasing names of top three candidates

Look at the above agenda. What is the sole purpose of this meeting in a nutshell? I think all would agree it is a called meeting to conduct interviews of the top three candidates for the position of county manager. By all accounts, do you believe the Appling County Commission has narrowed its search down to a top three candidates? The agenda certainly states they have.

For months, or since former County Manager Hayden Rozier resigned, The News-Banner has made open records requests for information regarding the top three candidates for the manager’s position. When we received word last week that they were planning to interview the top three candidates, we began to question why our records request had not been honored by the county.
