that by sharing important information about everything the office handles and the resources
that are available to all residents of Georgia.", states Wilson.
Since running for Gwinnett County District 3 Commissioner in 2020, Derrick has continued to

important to have the right individuals in these elected positions who understand the issues that
Georgians face daily. They need someone who will adjust and enforce regulations that will
