COMMISSION VICE-CHAIRMAN CINDY J. MILLS ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN FOR RE-ELECTION TO BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS, DISTRICT FOUR
CUMMING, GA. – Today, incumbent Commission Vice-Chairman Cindy J. Mills announced her intention to seek re-election to the Board of Commissioners in Forsyth County’s fourth commission district.
First elected in 2012, Mills is a lifelong resident of Forsyth County. As a trusted voice for taxpayers, homeowners and small businesses, Mills earned the support of her peers to achieve the position of commission vice-chairman for three consecutive years.
“During my first campaign, I pledged to improve transportation, listen to citizen input and to respond to their needs,” said Mills.
Today, I am pleased to report Forsyth County’s future looks brighter than ever as we have collaborated to preserve property rights, enhance customer service and keep taxes low while expanding transportation and facilitating new litter campaigns along the Ga. 400 and Hwy. 369 corridors,” she continued.
Since Mills took office, more than $350 million in local, state and federal transportation funding has been announced—contributing to the widening of state route GA-400 to Hwy. 369 including the addition of a long anticipated interchange at 400 and 369.
“While I am proud of the work we have done to bring more parks to district four, recruit new businesses, open our roads and increase citizen involvement in local government. I am equally proud of the work we have done to fight the war on drugs, combat domestic violence and help bring equity to our schools in North Forsyth. We have also addressed critical funding issues in juvenile justice, mental illness and family and children’s services,” said Mills
Founding the Forsyth County Drug Awareness Council, hosting multiple transportation summits and working in partnership with local nonprofits, Mills has utilized her position to find real solutions to end the problems troubling our community.
“District four citizens have different concerns than other areas of our county, particularly in education. I will continue to work closely with our local schools in North Forsyth to ensure that our students are afforded the same opportunities as those in other districts,” Mills stated.
As a recipient of the Don Hendricks Award, Mills was recognized for her efforts at Chestatee Elementary School where she secured funding for personal computers for children. In addition to her work at Chestatee, last year Mills raised $40,000 for the state REACH scholarships to assist eligible children.
Honored by the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia as the 2015 Advocate of the Year, Mills currently serves as the Chair of the organization’s county government policy committee. She is an active member of the North Forsyth 400 Rotary and serves on the United Way of Forsyth County Board of Directors.
Mills has two daughters, Megan Mills Bottoms, married to Nathan Bottoms, and Courtney, and resides in North Forsyth where she and her family worship at Oak Grove Baptist Church, where she teaches Sunday school. She is the proud grandmother of Brooklyn and Charlie.
