Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann (District 1) has been named as the Vice Chair for the Transit Subcommittee of the National Association of Counties (NACo) Committee on Transportation.
NACo President Greg Cox named Commissioner Hausmann to the post. Over the last year she has served on the NACo Transportation Committee, and served on the Georgia House Commission on Transit Funding and Governance for 2017-2018. She has played a key role in Fulton County’s Transit Study, including organizing trips for local leaders to Dallas/Plano, Texas and Los Angeles, California to review their transit system.
“I am honored to serve in this role with NACo, joining other counties around the nation who are seeking innovative and creative ways to expand transit in their communities,” said Commissioner Hausmann. “Fulton County’s role in transit continues to grow as we work to find alternative solutions to reduce traffic congestion in Metro Atlanta, and I am eager to be part of the forward momentum.”
In addition to the Transportation Committee, Commissioner Hausmann will serve as a member of NACo’s Large Urban County Caucus Steering Committee, International Economic Development Task Force, and Arts & Culture Commission.
Commissioner Hausmann has served on the Fulton County Board of Commissioners since January 2011. She represents District 1, which is located in northeast Fulton and encompasses Johns Creek and portions of Alpharetta, Roswell and Sandy Springs east of Georgia 400.
