The Collective PAC Endorses District 3 Commissioner Candidate. Gwinnett County, GA – Derrick J. Wilson, candidate for County Commissioner District 3, welcomes the endorsement of the Collective PAC today. “I am truly grateful to receive the endorsement of the Collective PAC because I share their commitment to diversify the advocates representing our communities,” said Wilson. “At a time when racial tension is high across the nation, this is when it is most important to have representatives from all races, cultures, and backgrounds, to bring their perspectives to the table to find solutions to bring our communities back together.”
“Our focus is to ensure our nation upholds its ideals and promises of a truly representative democracy by increasing the number of African Americans in public office at all levels,” says Chris Scott, Director of Campaigns - The Collective PAC. “Derrick Wilson is a clear choice for Gwinnett County Commissioner. He is a unifier with a broad and inclusive agenda. He has shown leadership and integrity through his efforts to garner resources for the underprivileged through his school drives and his community service during this pandemic.
As County Commissioner, we believe Derrick will seek the solutions that benefit all of the citizens within his district and county-wide.” Wilson is one of several candidates that were endorsed by the Collective PAC during this campaign cycle. He faces Jasper Watkins III for the Democratic nomination in the runoff election on August 11th. For more information, visit: http://www.wilson4gwinnett.com.
Local elected officials, members of law enforcement, contractors and engineers celebrated the “groundbreaking” of roughly $5 million Georgia State Patrol facility that will serve as a command post for 16 troopers, including HERO Unit along the Interstate 85 corridor in Suwanee.
Keeping Gwinnett safe is one of the top initiatives for all of the county government leaders.
I had a really good time learning about how the Gwinnett Department Of Transportation work. From the outside looking in you don't see all of the moving parts that go into running our transportation system. Did you know that most of the street signs that you see throughout Gwinnett are made in house by two talented gentlemen? I got a chance to see how they make the street signs in action. How the signs are printed and then applied to the reflective metal that we see on the highways as we travel around the county. I've included a short video to give you a glimpse at how it all goes done at the D.O.T.
The next thing that was pretty fascinating was seeing how the traffic is monitored from the DOT traffic station. There are cameras that can see very well the cars that are driving down the streets, so if you are thinking about running a red light or a stop sign, you'd better think again, because you are on candid camera.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
I got the chance to have dinner with 10 of my fellow residents from different parts of Gwinnett County. At the dinner we all got a chance to have an intimate conversation with Chairman, Gwinnett County Board Of Commissioner Charlotte J. Nash and District 1 Commissioner Jace Brooks. Nicole Love Hendrickson who is the Community Outreach Program Director organizes this event which is held a few times each year. This was a chance for me and my fellow residents to ask some burning questions of our community leaders and also have a dialog with each other.
