My public service priorities are in the areas of land use and planning, the  environment and conservation,  protection of established neighborhoods , fiscal responsibility  and accountability, and issues that impact our youth and senior citizens. I was elected by the citizens of Super District 6  to the DeKalb County Board of  Commissioners in 2004.

Over the years I  have served the Board of Commission as Deputy Presiding  Officer, Chair of Budget  & Finance,  Planning, Transportation, and rotated on all committees.  I am currently serving as the Presiding Officer of the Board of Commission.

In addition to my  work for you, I advocate for DeKalb County at a state and national level through my positions as a Board of Managers with the Association of County Commissions of Georgia (ACCG) and the National Association of Counties (NACo) Steering Committee for Environment , Energy, and Land Use, and the Resilient Counties Board initiatives.
