THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — Thomasville's mayor is back on the job after a months-long suspension.

Greg Hobbs sat in his seat at the City Council table tonight for the first time since his suspension was lifted.

Hobbs faced felony charges.

Governor Brian Kemp suspended Hobbs in April, during the investigation.

At the end of July, he pleaded down to two misdemeanor charges.

"My trust in the legal process has shaken, when a council member who was bound over for trial by a Thomas County grand jury removed from office by the governor of Georgia was the reinstated by the district attorney," said Wallace Goodman, Thomasville Resident.

The next city council meeting will be held on August 26.
