ATLANTA -- A Loganville man has been tapped to lead the State Road and Tollway Authority, which manages the state's HOT lanes operation and other toll services.
Christopher Tomlinson has been nominated by Gov. Nathan Deal to take over the job from Gena Evans, who submitted her resignation last month.
Tomlinson, who must be approved by the authority's board, currently serves as the group's deputy executive director and general counsel.
He joined the staff after working for the Department of Transportation and he has served as a lawyer for several other state entities including the Georgia Technology Authority, Georgia Building Authority, State Properties Commission and Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission, a press release said.
A graduate from Morehouse College with a law degree from Georgia State University, Tomlinson lives in Loganville with his wife Lillian and their two kids.
