Nash taps seven residents to serve on 2018 budget review team
Seven Gwinnett residents have agreed to help Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash set priorities and make recommendations for the 2018 proposed budget. The budget review team will convene for the first time Monday, August 28 when County department directors and agency heads present their business plans and financial resource requests. Budget presentations will take place through Thursday, August 31.

The six residents who served on last year’s review team are joined this year by Alida Sims, a social worker and recent graduate of the Gwinnett 101 Citizens Academy. Sims works as a regional kinship navigator for the Georgia Department of Community Services Division of Family and Children Services and also volunteers with a number of community organizations.

She is serving alongside Norwood Davis (CFO, 12Stone Church), Kevin Do (realtor, ReMax Grand South), Burt Manning (retired real estate appraiser) and Santiago Marquez (President and CEO, Georgia 
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) as well as Lisa Burleson (retired Gwinnett County Public Schools administrator) and David Cuffie (CEO, Total Vision Consulting LLC), who are fellow Gwinnett 101 alumni.

Nash said she finds that seeking public input in local government decisions leads to a better outcome and that the budget setting process is no exception.

“I am grateful to these talented individuals for volunteering to serve in this capacity,” said Nash. “Each person brings something different to the table, which is valuable as we listen to departmental needs and plans for the future, review revenue projections, and prepare the 2018 proposed budget.”

The videotaped business plan presentations will be available to view on demand on this website starting the afternoon of August 28.

The Chairman’s 2018 budget proposal will be made available to the public and news media on November 28 in conjunction with a formal presentation to the district commissioners. A budget public hearing will follow on December 4. By county ordinance, the Board of Commissioners must adopt the annual budget during its first meeting in January.
