Gwinnett Chairwoman Charlotte Nash makes reelection bid official

Gwinnett Commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash formerly announced plans Wednesday to seek reelection.

In a statement, Nash said, “I am especially interested in continuing to create jobs and build a strong economy in Gwinnett now and for the future. I want Gwinnett to be a place for young and old alike, but without a strong community and economy, opportunity is just an empty promise.”

Nash has served in the county’s top leadership position since mid-2011. The Gwinnett native worked for county government for more than 27 years until she retired in 2004. She is president of the Association of County Commissions of Georgia and serves on the Atlanta Regional Commission board.

Democratic candidate Jack Snyder, a mass transit advocate, will run against Nash this fall.
