Statesboro Mayor-elect Jonathan McCollar has a transition team working on naming three citizen commissions to pursue initiatives in job creation, youth development and diversity and inclusion. With McCollar’s swearing in, 9 a.m. Jan. 2 at the start of City Council’s first meeting of 2018, Statesboro’s first African-American mayor will succeed its first female mayor, current Mayor Jan Moore. McCollar received almost 53 percent of the votes cast Nov. 7 to Moore’s 41.7 percent in a three-candidate contest.
