On April 7, 2020 Governor Kemp created a committee consisting of 18 County Chairs and Administrators throughout the State of Georgia. This committee was formed to devise, debate, and decide upon ideas to address issues affecting counties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to deal with exigent issues stemming from the presence of the disease, and to offer agreed upon conclusions to the Governor for his consideration. The Committee will meet weekly via teleconference and held their first meeting, on Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
Chairman Morgan was one of 15 Chair Persons within the State to be appointed to the Committee due to her leadership and effectiveness during this time of crisis being one of the first in Georgia to sign a Public Health State of Emergency to ensure Carroll County would receive the financial assistance it needs during these unprecedented times.
Chairman Morgan stated after the first Committee meeting, This is a tremendous honor and opportunity to work closely and share ideas with other Commission Chairs and Governor Kemp to discuss economic recovery efforts when we emerge from this Pandemic. I will continue to work hard to focus on what actions need to be taken on a local level to ensure our citizens have every resource and opportunity available to assist them.
