Commissioners Visit Gold Dome for Capitol Connection Conference
More than 250 county officials visited the Atlanta for the 2019 Capitol Connection Conference. On Thursday, county officials gathered at the Depot for a joint legislative breakfast with state legislators, city officials, and representatives from the Georgia Municipal Association. Keynote speakers during the breakfast included Governor Kemp, Lt. Governor Duncan, DOR Commissioner Lynne Riley, and House Speaker David Ralston.
Immediately following the breakfast, county officials spent time at the Capitol working on significant issues ranging including preemptions on local design standards and the mandated pay raise for constitutional officers. ACCG leadership also met with Governor Kemp to discuss priority issues such as mental health, replacement of voting equipment, rural broadband and 5G deployment, and the importance of local control.
