A judge’s recent decision to toss out another elections lawsuit is clear evidence that elections in Georgia – particularly in Fulton County – are fair, accurate and transparent.
I have said from day one that critics of our elections were on a crazy witch hunt. Another judge clearly saw through the wild, false allegations and said the claims were based on speculation and paranoia.
We live in an area with traffic, offices, and congestion. But Fulton County is much more, and work is quickly moving forward on a project that will change our region into an outdoor wonderland right in our backyard.
On April 4, 2022, Fulton County began to accept applications from small business owners who continue to be in dire need of financial support due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and many have not yet recovered from the pandemic,” said Fulton County Chairman Robb Pitts. “So many were forced to layoff employees, temporarily close and face a scary, uncertain future. We must never stop doing all we can to help them get back on their feet and ensure they succeed.”
Reducing youth violence and school safety were the top priorities discussed during the first Youth and School Safety Summit hosted by Fulton County and Fulton County Schools on Thursday, March 31, 2022 at the Fulton County Government Center.
During their meeting on March 2, 2022, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution sponsored by District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. allocating $1 million to serve veterans in Fulton County.
Funds will be allocated to improve the lives of veterans through programs enhancing economic stability, health & wellness, and housing. The County Manager will bring forward recommendations for administration of funds, which will be administered through a competitive process with nonprofits serving Fulton County veterans.
As our community looks toward the future, the Board of Commissioners is developing plans that offer a thoughtful and strategic vision for affordable housing for Fulton County residents.

The $15.9 million investment represents approximately 17 acres. In my support of the redevelopment, I am advocating that some of these acquired properties be used for affordable housing for veterans and supportive transitional housing for the working poor, and the Hotel to Home model could be a large part of the Renew the District initiative over the next five years.
Fulton County will launch a major redevelopment of the Fulton Industrial Boulevard corridor over the next 5 years through its ambitious Renew the District initiative. During the first quarter, the County plans to issue a Master Developer RFP to explore options for redevelopment of these properties, which may include commercial redevelopment as well as permanent supportive housing, veterans housing, and other options.

The brainchild of Fulton County Chairman Robb Pitts, similar legislation was approved by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners in June that has resulted in a $10 million investment with two minority-owned financial institutions in Fulton County.
Pitts slammed the review as “partisan politics at its worst,” telling CNN he has warned Greene and Florida Representative Matt Gaetz, who are both closely aligned with Trump, to stay away from the county’s election review process.
