    Remarks from ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield

    Our second County Day of the Session is set for this Wednesday, and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to our new conference room on the 2nd floor of 2 North Jackson Street. At this point, we have just about settled in to our new “home” on the 7th floor, so if you haven’t already, we hope you’ll take the time to check out the new headquarters for county government. And anytime you’re in town, we hope you’ll feel comfortable stopping by the office and taking advantage of the “Members Lounge,” which was designed as a place for you to rest, prepare and engage with the staff. Come see us, and have a great week!
