Introduction by Chairwoman Lisa Cupid
We have a lot to be proud of in Cobb County.
Our three separate AAA ratings alone make us one of the top counties in the nation. We offer more services for less property taxes than the other metro Atlanta counties.
Our people care about government and our county employees care about providing services to the public. Our stewardship did not waiver through the pandemic. We worked with public health safety officials to help safeguard residents and visitors alike while balancing the needs of the business community.
During the past year, accreditation agencies confirmed we are on the right path. Our police department, 911 department, and training academy programs maintained their accreditation, making our public safety agency one of only 22 in the nation to earn the TRI-ARC award.
At every turn, Cobb County strives for excellence. We hold ourselves with pride in our accomplishments. We work hard to fix the problems natural to a metro community of more than 760,000 people. We do all this because we care about all those who live, work and visit here.
It is our home and it deserves our best efforts. It is a special place filled with life, potential, and progress. It is a place we share and it is our job to continue its tradition of greatness.
Thank you for allowing us to make that happen.
