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.
Commissioner Marlene Fosque Is The First African American To Serve On The Board Of Commissioners For Gwinnett County
I had the honor spending some time with Commissioner Marlene Fosque who is the first African American to serve on the board of commissioners. While attending the first night for Gwinnett Citizen Academy 101, Commissioner Fosque was one of the speakers at the event. I got a chance to have a great conversation and she expressed how grateful she was to be able to serve the people of Gwinnett County. The Commissioner told me that she ran her campaign with less than $10,000 and was able to win the seat. She knows that was by the grace of God and she is grateful. She wants the citizens of Gwinnett County to know that she has an open door policy. She wants to hear from the community about issues that may concern them. If you live in district 4 she wants you to stop by, but she also stressed that even though she has her district that she is responsible for, she committed to all of Gwinnett County citizens. Right now Commissioner Fosque said her calendar is filled up until mid June, but anyone wanting to come by the office can request an appointment and be added to her calendar.
As I am out and about in the community I will continue to bring you stories both on the show and here on the blog about what's happening around Gwinnett County.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
