Civic Center candidate withdraws

ALBANY, Ga. -- Albany is back to square one in finding a new director for its Civic Center.

Shannon McCullough, currently the operations director of the Classic Center in Athens, withdrew from consideration this morning. McCullough was named as the pending director on Thursday.

McCullough told Albany officials he did not know Albany City Manager Alfred Lott was leaving his position next year and said he did not want to accept the Civic Center directorship under that circumstance.

The city had no other candidates under consideration for the position and will re-advertise the position which has been vacant since the departure of John Mazzola.
