In a unanimous decision, Macon City Council voted Councilman James Timley as their new leader.
Timley was the President Pro-Tem, and served in the Ward II, Post I seat.
Timley said, despite past councils having differences and disagreements, that is not always a bad thing. He says it is o.k. that council members question one another, as long as they are respectful to each other.
Timley says he is looking forward to serving as President of the council.
Councilman Larry Schlesinger was voted as President Pro Tem.
