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.
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
