Closing Comments from the 7/13/21 BOC Meeting
Good Afternoon Everyone: I would like to begin today by extending my condolences to the family and friends of Jean Brown who passed away recently. Jean was a beloved member of our community and a longtime member of the District 4 Community Council. Upon her retirement from the Community Council, my office honored her service with a proclamation that we issued on March 10, 2020, which as it turns out, was the last in-person BOC meeting that we held before the onset of the pandemic. Jean’s presence and kindness will most certainly be missed. Over the weekend I attended the National Association of Counties (NACO) Annual Conference. As always, it was a pleasure to fellowship with colleagues from around the country. Yesterday, is was indeed an honor to bear witness as our friend and colleague Commissioner Larry Johnson ascended to the position of NACo President. In recognition of his years of dedicated public service, this ascension is most appropriate. Commissioner Johnson’s achievement brings great credit upon himself, DeKalb County, and the State of Georgia. We are all very proud of Commissioner Larry Johnson.
On Saturday July 17, in partnership with School Board Chair Vickie Turner, my office with host a Back-to-School Supply event at Clarkston First Baptist Church from 10am–2pm. More information will be available across our communications platforms. On Saturday July 24 from 9am–10:30am, we will be holding our third Quarterly in the Fourth Community Breakfast Meeting for 2021. Again, this meeting will be conducted virtually. Hopefully, we will be able to meet in person again sometime soon. More information will be available across our communications platforms. If you need any information or assistance you may call my office at 404-371-4749 or visit my website at commissionerbradshaw.com. l will close today by once again thanking the citizens of District 4 for affording me this opportunity to serve. It is indeed an honor.
