A certified re-count Tuesday night cemented Tommy Hunter as the newest member of the Gwinnett County Commission, after defeating District 3 Incumbent Mike Beaudreau in his bid for a third term by a mere 57 votes.   Hunter has previously served as DOT Coordinator for the Department of Public Utilities and as a member of the Gwinnett County Water and Sewerage Authority, serving as Secretary of the Authority in 2008.
