The City Manager is the chief administrative officer of the city and devotes all of his or her working time and attention to the affairs of the city and is responsible to the Mayor and City Council for the administration of all city affairs placed in the manager's charge by or under the City Charter. 

Before coming to Stockbridge, Mr. Knighton was the Hall County Administrator.  Prior to that he served four years as Hall County’s Senior Planner and five years as Planning Director.  He has also held positions in Orange County, Florida’s Planning Department, the City of Orlando’s Planning Department as well as Osceola County, Florida’s Planning Department.

Mr. Knighton earned a Master of Public Administration and Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice degree from the University of Central Florida. He also holds a Master of Divinity degree from Emory University.  He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) and the American Planning Association (APA).  He is also a credentialed manager of the International City/County Managers’ Association (ICMA).  Mr. Knighton and his wife, Debbie, have two children, Randy II and Ryan. 

In a statement, Mr. Knighton said, “I am very thankful to have this opportunity to work with the Mayor and Council to build upon the foundation already established in the City of Stockbridge.  I will work diligently and in concert with elected officials, staff, and citizens to ensure the City of Stockbridge realizes its vision.  I am grateful for the opportunity to humbly serve in the leadership role of City Manager.”

Richard V. Mecum, a former Hall County Chairman, former Hall County Sheriff and former U. S.
