Douglas County District 4 Commissioner Ann Jones Guider has scheduled her annual Town Hall meeting for 10 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 26, at Ephesus Baptist Church located at 8445 Ephesus Church Rd., a halfmile west of Post Rd. Commissioner Guider annually holds her town hall meeting near the first of the calendar year, which is also the beginning of the County’s fiscal year, so that she can report to her constituents actions of the past year and plans for the new year.
“I hope that many people will turn out. I will be addressing the economic situation of the County, taxes, new tag laws, road projects in progress, and answering questions from the audience,” stated Guider.
Ephesus Baptist was chosen as the site of this year’s Town Hall meeting since it is centrally located within District 4 which stretches from the Paulding to Carroll County from north to south, and generally what is considered the “western side” of the County. District 4 is the largest County Commission District in terms of size, and residents of all four Districts are welcome to attend. A map of District 4 is included on Commissioner Guider’s elected official page of the County web site, www.CelebrateDouglasCounty.com.
Guider was elected District 4 Commissioner in 2010. She serves a four-year term. She previously served as the Douglas County Tax Commissioner for 28 years, retiring in 2008. She is the current Chairperson of the Community Character Coalition of Douglas County, and serves on the S.H.A.R.E. House Board of Directors. She is the founder and leader of a Celebrate Recovery at Ephesus Baptist Church. She is married to Bob Guider, and has four children and five grandchildren.
Light refreshments, including coffee and juice, will be served. The Town Hall meeting is open to the public with free admission.
