LAKELAND, Tenn. (FOX13) -

It appears Shelby County Commissioner Chris Thomas is headed to a new career.

By a unanimous decision Tuesday evening Thomas was chosen as the new city manager of the city of Lakeland. Thomas replaces Bob Wherry, who was dismissed without cause from the $180,000-per-year position.

Wherry had been city manager for 12 years.

Through Twitter Commissioner Thomas said he will finish his term on the county commission but will not seek re-election in 2014.
