The Gwinnett County Police Citizens Advisory Board will hold its first town hall meeting Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. to give residents an opportunity to meet board members, hear from the chief of police and make their voice heard about public safety in Gwinnett.

The board also serves as a vehicle to help residents stay informed and involved in public safety by providing recommendations related to law enforcement policies, procedures, practices and training.

Residents are invited to submit comments for the meeting in person or online by visiting GCGA.us/PCATownhall.

Councilmember Wins Two Civic Awards

Published

on

August was a banner month for Councilmember Lorri Christopher! The long-time Rotarian received the “Rotarian of The Year Award” for exemplifying this year’s theme for the international organization, “Rotary Opens Opportunities” on August 18.

Then the following week, she was one of seven winners (out of 90 finalists) named in this year’s Gwinnett Chamber’s annual Moxie Awards. Lorri received the “Greater Good Award” from the chamber on Aug. 27.

The Greater Good Award recognizes a woman championing her community. Her innovative
ideas reach all members of her region and make her community an ideal place to live, work and play.

The Moxie Awards recognizes both individuals and organizations. Individual awards honor
those who are trailblazers in a male-dominated field, Gwinnett County champions, emerging
leaders, professionals who are at the peak of their career and those who are generous with
their time, talent, or resources.

Another Peachtree Corners citizen, Judge Kristina Hammer Blum, Chief Magistrate for Gwinnett County was part of event, participating in a panel discussing “Turning Your Obstacles into Opportunities.”

Ms. Christopher has served on the Peachtree Corners City Council since the city was founded
July 2012.
