Why I Support Carol Myers For ACC Commission

Carol Myers is my choice for Athens-Clarke District 8 commissioner in the June 9 Primary.

Commissioners need to listen to citizens, to county staff, to other commissioners and elected folks. As I have worked in support of Myers’s campaign, her ability to pay attention to issues, events, and people has impressed me. She listens.

She has spent many hours serving on county commission committees, two SPLOST citizen advisory committees, Envision Athens and Athens In Motion, renewable energy and alternative transportation efforts. Myers has committed time, patience and the ability to learn from successful leaders, plus the willingness to go to bat for civic good.

As Athens expands our transportation options beyond the private car into bike lanes, more bus service and more sidewalks, the issues Myers advances will help our local businesses return to work with employees who can get to work! As Athens becomes more energy-independent, with Carol’s work on the 100% Renewable Energy Resolution plus SPLOST dollars to fund it, every citizen and business in our county is better positioned to thrive in our post-COVID-19 life.
