District 3 Commissioner Felicia Franklin

JONESBORO — District 3 Commissioner Felicia Franklin has been selected to represent Clayton County at the 18th Annual County Leadership Institute (CLI) to be held in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 7-11.

According to the National Association of Counties (NACo), this rigorous four-day program enhances the capability of county officials to identify and implement innovative solutions to complex challenges facing county government. It also offers the selected officials a platform to forge positive, sustained change in their communities.

Marty Linksey, CLI program developer and co-founder of Cambridge Leadership Associates, said that this current era is characterized as a “permanent crisis.” Attendees of this year’s event will learn how to effectively address the demands of personal leadership in a new era of government.

“I am honored to be selected and committed to learning everything that I can to solve complex problems with innovative solutions,” said Franklin. “I look forward to strategizing with other county officials and bringing creative ideas back to move Clayton County forward.”
