“We are optimistic because we have every reason to be,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash as she delivered her State of the County address (read the text or watch the video) on Thursday, January 16, 2014, at the Gwinnett Center during the annual State of the County luncheon hosted by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce and the Council for Quality Growth.
Turning attention to the future, Nash reminded the audience that the County’s bicentennial is coming in December 2018. She used this milestone to illustrate the importance of planning Gwinnett’s third century. “I believe that our plans should be aimed at Gwinnett setting the standard for a thriving community, not just being a mediocre also-ran,” she said. “It’s going to take all of us – not just those of us in this room, but all of Gwinnett’s individuals and communities – working together to make this a reality.”
The State of the County address will be available for viewing on Friday, January 17 at 8:00pm on TVgwinnett, which is accessible online, on demand, and on the government access cable channels of Charter, Comcast, and AT&T- U-verse. The program will periodically air throughout the new year.
