DeKalb commission chooses new leaders

The DeKalb County commission has selected District 4 Commissioner Steve Bradshaw as its new presiding officer, a position that will allow him to run meetings and appoint committee chairs. 

Bradshaw, who was first elected to office in 2016, previously served as deputy presiding officer. He replaces District 2 Commissioner Jeff Rader in the more prominent position.

Bradshaw was appointed by unanimous vote. 

“He's really what I would consider the type of leader who wants to build collaborations and partnerships,” Commissioner Larry Johnson said. 

Commissioner Lorraine Cochran-Johnson, who represents Super District 7, was chosen Tuesday as the commission’s new deputy presiding officer.
