Cobb Commission Chairman
Tim Lee
and Winner Announcement
2015 VBA Business of the Year
Tim Lee was elected as the 6th Chairman of Cobb County in July 2010. Prior to being elected Chairman, he served as District 3 Commissioner from 2002-2010. During the past 5 years, Lee has focused on enhancing public safety, growing Cobb’s economy and ensuring sound fiscal management and operation.  

Under Lee’s leadership the Public Safety department has implemented a strategic plan that put more police officers on the street, strengthened recruitment and retention policies across public safety departments, doubled the number of annual police academies and implemented cutting edge technologies to help all first responders keep Cobb County safe.

Chairman Lee is widely recognized for the leadership role he played in bringing the Atlanta Braves to Cobb County in 2017.  This historic move and precedent setting public-private partnership is a game changing development that will positively impact Cobb County for decades to come.

Lee is an energetic champion of growing Cobb’s economy.  Since he has been Chairman, more than 13,000 jobs have been created or retained and there has been more than $2 billion of private investment.
