Closing Comments from the October 24, 2023 BOC Meeting

Good afternoon, everyone:


On October 11 it was a pleasure to join my friends in Brookhaven for the groundbreaking ceremony for their new City Hall Complex. The facility is being funded through a Special Service District and is set to be completed in 2025. I would like to see all the municipalities in DeKalb County from South DeKalb to Central DeKalb to North DeKalb prosper. Being able to bear witness to this step forward in the City of Brookhaven aligns with that intent.

On October 14 it was great to join my friends in the Latino Community for the 35th Annual Latin Fever Ball at Flourish Atlanta hosted by the Latin American Association. As usual it was an awesome event with wonderful food, music, and company. I stand in full support of the goals of the Latin American Association, and I have demonstrated that support with significant contributions from my discretionary Cares Act and American Rescue Plan funds. I would like to commend LAA CEO Santiago Marquez for his outstanding stewardship of this great organization and thank him for the invitation to attend.

On October 16 it was great to participate in the 18th Annual DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic at the Stone Mountain Golf Course. Despite the chilly weather we had a great time in support of a great organization. As usual, at least lately, my golf game was a little sporadic. However, my playing partners were patient with me and we all laughed a lot. And I did manage to sink a birdie putt on the final hole. I would like to thank DeKalb Chamber President and CEO Frankie Atwater for hosting a great event, and for his outstanding leadership of the organization.

And October 21 was the Grand Opening Gala for Gray Television’s Assembly Atlanta, which is a 135-acre mixed use property designed to look and feel like a city center. I was unable to attend due to some previously scheduled out-of-town travel. But my office was well-represented by our Communications Specialist Carrie Kordys. Needless-to-say, we are very proud to have this amazing development in DeKalb County.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may 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.
