Onslow County Wednesday named a new county manager, someone with experience already with how the county works.
Jeff Hudson was unanimously selected during a special county commissioners meeting.
Hudson, who is currently assistant school superintendent for Onslow County, served as assistant county manager and then deputy county manager from February 1996 until July 2002.
He also was town manager for Holly Ridge from July 1993 through February 1996.
Hudson replaces Frank Clifton, who was pressured to resign last year. He begins his new job in mid June at a salary of $125,000.
