๐ŸŒŸGwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chair 2024๐ŸŒŸ

Updated: Apr 7

My fellow Gwinnett County residents,

Since settling in this county in 1998, I've closely observed its growth and changes. However, the recent trajectory of developments alarms me, as there seems to be an unprecedented level of disregard for the community's welfare and desires. The prevailing attitudeโ€”a stark lack of consideration and an arrogance that dismisses the concerns of our citizensโ€”demands urgent correction. Fiscal responsibility should be rooted in a genuine appreciation for every resource, a principle I've embraced since moving here. We urgently need to pivot towards leadership that not only practices true fiscal prudence but also deeply respects and prioritizes the needs of our residents.

Here's where we stand:

Public Safety and Crime Prevention: The safety of our children is paramount, yet crime in Gwinnett County is on the rise. How many of you have been victims or witnessed car break-ins, homes and businesses being burglarized, carjackings, aggressive behavior on our roads, or children going missing, even from school properties? We are currently short by 800 police officers, and successfully hiring this number would only bring us to about half of the force size needed for a county of our magnitude.

High-Density Developments: High-density developments need to be controlled, a concern I've voiced for the past two years. The pace at which we're building is too rapid, compromising previously sound standards in an effort to accommodate as many people as possible in limited spaces. This has led to overcrowded schools and worsening traffic, significantly affecting our quality of life. Whereas we once had buffers to maintain space and order, current construction is nearing encroachment on Highway 29 and other major corridors. In catering to future residents, we risk neglecting the needs and wishes of current residents who have entrusted their votes to these politicians. It appears that financial incentives are driving these decisions, with positions on prestigious boards likely secured for those who comply.

Traffic Solutions: Traffic is not solely an environmental concern but also significantly affects air quality, our quality of life, and mental health. Tackling crime and overdevelopment is paramount, and once these issues are under control, addressing traffic must follow. We plan to bring together top experts, who are readily available within Gwinnett County, to offer voluntary solutions to our traffic issues. We'll explore ways to expand roads, construct middle lanes, enhance traffic light systems, and improve automation for more efficient traffic management.

Property Taxes: Regarding property taxes, a disproportionate increase is a clear indication of governance falling short of its responsibilities. Our residents are feeling the strain, and it's impacting our small businesses even more severely. It's crucial to halt the escalation of property taxes and, where feasible, reduce them. Our goal is to realign local government to truly serve its people, not special interests. We're advocating for a government of the people, by the people, for the people, ensuring that decisions made reflect the best interests of Gwinnett County residents.

Fiscal Responsibility: At the heart of my campaign is a pledge for Fiscal Responsibility. It's a principle I hold dear, not just as a candidate, but as someone who's navigated life's challenges with a mindset of making the most of every opportunity, no matter how slim. My journey from immigrant to community member has taught me the value of stretching every dollar, making impactful changes with resources others might overlook. If you're seeking fiscal responsibility, consider this: immigrants like myself have mastered the art of stretching a dollar and making the seemingly impossible happen.

We must be honest with ourselves: without addressing the urgent issue of crime, other efforts risk falling short. We canโ€™t let our countyโ€™s future be compromised. Our most vibrant and productive residents and businesses might look elsewhere, transforming Gwinnett County from a family-oriented community to one marked by crime and declining property values.
