TOA Toots Its Own Horn

Governor Perdue has named yours truly to a two-year term as the 10th congressional district representative on the Georgia Children’s Trust Fund Commission. According to the Commission’s web site, “The primary purpose of the fund is to support the establishment of community-based educational and service programs designed to reduce the occurrence of child abuse and neglect in Georgia. Money to fund the Children's Trust Fund Commission is appropriated annually by the General Assembly and is maintained as a separate fund within the state treasury. To date over 700 grants have been made from the Trust Fund with awards totaling over $19,000,000.”

See the
press release from the Governor’s Office (about two-thirds of the way down the page) and the GCTFC's web site.

In terms of local appointments, I have served on the Development Authority of the Unified Government of Athens Clarke County since 2003 and am currently
assistant secretary/treasurer.

For those who may not know, I am also a member of the
State Committee of the Georgia Republican Party, serving as a representative from the former 12th congressional district in 2005 and from the current 10th congressional district since 2006.

Congratulations! That sounds like a little more fun than my most recent board election. I am part of the newly re-constituted Board of Directors for the Sexual Assault Center of NE GA. We're rebuilding a very important resource in the local fight against child abuse and it is good new to hear we have a neighbor on the Board of the Georgia Children's Trust Fund Commission.
