The Council for Quality Growth partnered with the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce and the South Fulton Chamber of Commerce to co-host the first ever Fulton State of the County Address on Thursday, April 30.
Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves addressed nearly 300 guests at the event, where he spoke on a variety of issues such as county government efficiency, bipartisanship between the county’s Democratic and Republican commissioners, and constituent services. Chairman Eaves assured attendees that the commission is united in its commitment to improving public safety, health care, and senior services.
Chairman Eaves highlighted some of the commissions’ 2015 successes thus far, including an agreement on a multi-million dollar general fund budget, the hiring of successful businessman Dick Anderson as county manager and the election of bipartisan leadership within the commission.
Chairman Eaves also voiced support of a one-cent transportation sales tax, which Fulton County voters rejected three years ago. He also highlighted the county’s goal of reducing county spending by $100 million throughout the next decade, stating that both Republicans and Democrats want a more efficient government.
