 MUNICIPAL ELECTRIC AUTHORITY OF GEORGIA
 NAMES NEW PRESIDENT/GENERAL MANAGER
 ATLANTA, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The chairman of the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG) announced today that the Authority has selected a new president and general manager to lead the Authority beginning in mid-1992.
 Albany businessman G.N. Manley, chairman of the Authority, said members had selected Frank L. Olson of Cordele, Ga., to succeed Donald L. Stokley as president and general manager of MEAG.
 MEAG is the non-profit power supplier to 48 Georgia communities that own their own electric distribution systems. Headquarters of the agency are in northwest Atlanta.
 Olson, 59, is currently general manager of the Crisp County Power Commission in Cordele, where he has been employed for 27 years. A 1961 electrical engineering graduate from the Georgia Institute of Technology, he was one of the founding MEAG Authority members in 1975 and has been vice chairman of the Authority since 1984. He is also a member of the board of directors of the American Public Power Assn., the Washington-based national trade organization of community-owned electric systems.
 Commenting on the appointment, Manley said: "We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Frank's caliber to succeed Don Stokley. His many years of experience in the utility industry, as well as his broad-based knowledge of public power, made him the ideal candidate for this critical position."
 Stokley will retire from MEAG in the first half of 1992, but the Authority will utilize him in a consulting capacity for an indefinite period following his retirement. He was the first employee of the Authority, coming to Atlanta in December 1976 from his previous position as senior vice president, engineering and systems operation, of the Wisconsin Power & Light Co. in Madison, Wis.
