Updated: Mar 15

Good Afternoon, Everyone:

 

On February 15 it was a great honor to address the Leadership Perimeter Class of 2024. I was asked to give a presentation on DeKalb County’s government, which I was very happy to do. After providing an overview I received several very insightful questions from the participants, and I really enjoyed the candid exchange. I would like to thank my friend and Leadership Perimeter Program Director, Catherine Lautenbacher for the invitation.

On February 17 it was wonderful to attend the National Association of Chinese-Americans' Annual Dinner to celebrate the Lunar New Year. As always this is a great event full of wonderful entertainment and excellent food, and it is a date on my calendar that I look forward to. I would like to thank my good friend Tucker City Council Member Virginia Rece for the invitation to join her at her table. I would also like to commend and thank NACA Chair Lani Wong and President Maggie Mers for their outstanding leadership of this great organization, and for hosting an amazing event.

On February 22 it was great to attend the 16th Annual Black History Month Celebration at the DeKalb History Center (DHC). It was a wonderful program and an amazing Tribute to Black History in DeKalb. I would like to commend and thank DHC Executive Director, Melissa Carlson and President-Elect Jacqui Steele for their amazing leadership and for hosting a wonderful program.

On February 23 I was honored to deliver a presentation at Georgia Piedmont Technical College (GPTC) for the Leader College, sharing some of my Thoughts On Leadership. The Leader College is a group of professionals undergoing a program to enhance their leadership skills. I was invited to share my thoughts based upon my experiences as a Military Officer, Corporate Sales Executive, Adjunct College Professor, and County Commissioner. I always appreciate the opportunity to share some of what I have learned over the years with the next generation of leaders. This opportunity was no exception. I would like to thank GPTC President Dr. Tavarez Holston and his entire team for their vital role in our community and for the invitation to participate.

On February 24 it was great to join my friends at the South DeKalb Improvement Association Education (SDIAE) for a Listening Session Addressing Disparities in Black & Brown Communities. SDIAE serves an important role in our community and the session was very informative. I would like to thank SDIAE Executive Director Ella Davis and her entire board for making such important information available to our community.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please call my office at 404-371-4749, or visit my website at commissionerbradshaw.com. Follow me on all the major social media platforms for updates between the meetings, too.

 

As always, I will conclude my remarks by thanking the citizens of District 4 and DeKalb County for affording me this opportunity to serve. It is indeed an honor.
