Gov. Deal appoints state transportation planner

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Governor Nathan Deal is appointing a political adviser as Georgia's transportation planning director.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Toby Carr will have a key role in deciding which projects get funded with the state's $2 billion annual gas tax budget.

Carr is a former director of the Georgia Republican Party. He was director of Deal's gubernatorial transition committee, and has been serving as Deal's transportation policy adviser.

Carr replaces Todd Long, a career engineer and transportation planner. Long was appointed by Gov. Sonny Perdue and kept on by Deal. He has now moved to deputy commissioner of the state Department of Transportation.
