Leadership Johns Creek (LJC) was treated to quite a day in Atlanta on March 8, hosted by Roger Wise, National Ambassador for the Shriners Hospitals of North America.
The class began the day at the Fulton County Government Center with visits from Commissioner Liz Hausmann, County Manager Zachary Williams, and County Attorney David Ware. From there, the group headed two blocks north to the State Capitol to meet with Secretary of State Brian Kemp and State Rep. Lynne Riley.
The group was joined at lunch in the Agriculture Building by Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker, Mayor Pro Tem Bev Miller, Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard, Commissioner Hausmann, Rep. Riley, Sen. John Albers, and Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle. After an informative lunch, class members retired to the Fulton County Courthouse for discussion time with Superior Court Clerk Cathelene “Tina” Robinson, and Judges Shawn Ellen LaGrua, Christopher Brasher and John Goger.
Their “Day Under the Dome” wouldn’t have been complete without a guided tour of the Fulton County Jail, a highlight of the day. he group first heard from Chief Jailer Mark Adger, Lt. Rambo, and Sheriff Theodore Jackson. Split into two groups, LJC participants saw cell blocks, the kitchen, the intake area and even heard from some prisoners.
