Decatur, GA — DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson, in his role as the District 3 Commissioner and Immediate Past President of the National Association of Counties, was recognized by his local government counterparts from the UK and Australia for his leadership role in the American Rescue Plan’s implementation and NACo’s THRIVE initiative, a press release said.
Commissioner Johnson was the only U.S. local leader selected by the Local Government Information Unit, a nonprofit, nonpartisan association, to be featured in its Global Local Showcase, the press release said.
The award recognizes local government leaders who have worked tirelessly over the last year to improve residents’ quality of life, pursue innovative programs, and bridge diverse opinions within communities.
“I am grateful and honored to receive this international recognition,” said Commissioner Johnson. “Local governments from around the world can learn from one another. I’m humbled to be part of a global community that can inspire positive change at the local level.”
