SPLOST makes Gwinnett better
By Charlotte J. Nash, Chairman
Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners

This off-year election offered one major choice – a renewal of the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for three more years.

Giving back at the Holidays
By Charlotte J. Nash, Chairman
Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners

Growing up on a farm, late fall was always a time of mixed emotions for me. Shorter days and colder weather kept us all indoors more but at least we could look ahead to the holidays with great anticipation.

Nov 5 SPLOST vote is important
By Charlotte J. Nash, Chairman
Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners

Gwinnett voters have approved the one-penny SPLOST sales tax seven times since 1985. This year, on November 5, it will be on the ballot again.

What’s Great about Gwinnett
By Charlotte J. Nash, Chairman
Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners

In this – my second column for the Gwinnett Citizen – I’ll talk a bit about why I enjoy serving you as a leader in our county government. We’ve faced significant challenges in recent years, but local residents and County staff met all them head-on, and I’m proud to say that success still lives here.

Count on the county
By Charlotte Nash 
Chairman, Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners

I was pleased when the editors of The Gwinnett Citizen asked me to write a regular column about the county government. As a 27-year employee, I believe I have some relevant experience especially in the financial and budget areas. For the last nine of those years, I served as the appointed County Administrator. After a brief retirement, I became an elected official for the first time in my life, serving as the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners since March 2011.

County government has changed a lot over those years
