An Atlanta-based non-profit group that focuses on empowering residents in the metropolitan area has declared Clayton County Commission Vice Chairman Wole Ralph to be a “Player” — a civic service, mover-and-shaker-type of player that is.
The Civic League of Regional Atlanta will spotlight Ralph next week as its “Regional Player of the Week,” county officials announced on Friday.
The honor is used by the group to highlight people whose contributions help improve the Atlanta area.
The commission vice chairman was cited by the Civic League’s selection committee for work he has done with “civic participation, economic development, job creation and service to the needy” in choosing him for the honor, according to county officials.
“I am continuously working to help identify job opportunities for the people of Clayton County and our region as a whole,” said Ralph, in a written statement.
“Our economy has changed, and many people are in a dire financial state. My primary concern is, and always has been, the well-being of our citizens and their families.”
Recent recipients of the honor include Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, and Henry County Chamber of Commerce President Kay Pippin.
