Many of our readers from District 5 may have already heard the news, but we at Cascade Patch wanted to congratulate our District 5 Fulton County Commissioner on her new role.
Commissioner Emma Darnell represents District 5, which includes Northwest Atlanta, Southwest Atlanta, and a portion of unincorporated South Fulton. On January 9, 2013, she was unanimously selected by her peers to serve as Vice Chair of the Board of Commissioners for 2013.
Each year, the Vice Chair is elected from among the Commissioners and serves a one-year term. The Vice Chair presides over meetings and handles other matters in absence of the Commission Chair.
Commissioner Darnell was born in Atlanta and is a graduate of Fisk University, Teachers College, Columbia University, and Howard University School of Law.
