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.
Conservative budgeting and sound fiscal management are tenets of Chairman Lee’s administration. 2015 marked the 19th consecutive year that Cobb County was rated Triple AAA, the most prestigious bond rating available and one that only 40 counties in the nation hold. Five conservative, balanced budgets have been adopted under Tim Lee’s leadership. The 2016 adopted budget will reduce property taxes to 6.82 mills, the second lowest in metro Atlanta.
Tim Lee was honored as Cobb County Citizen of the Year in 2013, has been named as one of the Most Influential Georgians in both Georgia Trend and the Atlanta Business Chronicle and was recently recognized by Atlanta magazine as one of the most powerful people shaping Metro Atlanta today.
Prior to serving on the Board of Commissioners, Lee worked in advertising and marketing for more than 30 years. He is a member of the Marietta Kiwanis Club and Marietta First United Methodist Church. Tim and his wife, Annette, have been married for 26 years and are proud parents of three children and five grandchildren.
