FULTON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
Inauguration January 5, 2011
We are fortunate to live in one of the greatest counties in the world.
Although Fulton County has made great strides in many areas, I believe that our county can grow to even greater heights. To do this, we must first recognize our strengths and then identify our shortcomings in order to solve existing problems. I believe that the formula for greatness is admitting that problems exist and facing them head-on.
My commitment is to work closely with the Board of Commissioners in order to get these problems solved. I believe greatness can be achieved if individual differences are put aside for the benefit of Fulton County.
Working together with elected officials, the business and religious communities, as well as our neighborhoods, is the key to achieving true greatness.
