Outgoing Gwinnett BOC Chairman Charlotte Nash recognized at the November City Council meeting

Both Walton County and Gwinnett County will get new heads of the Board of Commissioners in January 2021. Walton County BOC will be under the chairmanship of incoming Chairman David Thompson (R) and Gwinnett County BOC will be under the newly-elected chairmanship of Chairman Nicole Love Hendrickson (D).

Nash, who has served Gwinnett County almost consistently for more than four decades, the last nine as the chairman of the BOC, was on hand at the Loganville City Council’s November meeting as part of a farewell tour she is taking through all the 16 cities in the County. Little will be recognized by Loganville at the December meeting.

Gwinnett County Board of Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash announced that she would not be running for re-election this year so no matter the outcome of the 2020 election, it was already known that she would not be in the chair in 2021. As it turns out, the seat was won by Democrat Nicole Love Hendrickson who beat out Republican David Post in what was one of the more rare blue waves in the 2020 Election. 

A Resolution was read and Nash was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a plaque by Loganville Mayor Rey Martinez for her service to the City of Loganville during her more than four decades in service to Gwinnett County. A little under 1/3 of the City of Loganville lies within Gwinnett County. 

“Loganville has been a great partner to us,” Nash said, going on to mention some of the incidents in which the city and Gwinnett County worked together.

Nash was elected Chairman of the Gwinnett County BOC in a March 15, 2011 Special Election, re-elected in 2012 and again in 2016. Her service to Gwinnett County has been almost consistent for more than four decades. She also worked for the Gwinnett County Government for 27 years for a time prior to her election, first as Director of Financial Services, Budget Director and Grants Manager before serving as the County Administrator for nine years before her 2004 retirement from the County.
