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!
