Thomasville City Councilmember Jay Flowers has been elected Vice President of the Georgia Municipal Association District 10 Committee. District officers are elected through a vote conducted by elected municipal officials in GMA’s District 10 cities. Nominations for officer positions are submitted by current and past officers.
“It is an honor to serve with this highly-regarded group of municipal professionals,” said Flowers. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the 45 member cities that form District 10 of the GMA. Through our district, we can present issues and concerns that should be addressed at the GMA legislative platform.”
Created in 1933 and based in Atlanta, the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) is the only state organization that represents all 538 cities in Georgia. The GMA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, educational, employee benefit and technical consulting services to its members. “The mission of the GMA is to anticipate and influence the forces shaping Georgia’s cities,” said Flowers. “The leadership tools and services that are provided assist municipal governments in becoming more innovative, effective, and responsive.”
“We are very proud of Councilmember Flowers’ election to the District 10 Committee of the GMA,” said Alan Carson, Thomasville City Manager. “I’m confident Jay will serve in this leadership role, as he does all of his roles, with dignity and the utmost professionalism. We are fortunate to have a Councilmember such as Mr. Flowers that will represent our local community with a strong and knowledgeable voice.”
Added Flowers, “I am honored to represent the City of Thomasville as part of the GMA leadership. I look forward to fulfilling the responsibility that has been entrusted to me as an engaged representative that will provide a voice for local and statewide municipalities. Thomasville is a municipal leader that impacts Southwest Georgia.”
As third vice-president of the committee, Flowers would represent Thomasville as District 10 President in three years if he maintains his seat on the Thomasville City Council.
