Brooks to be Sworn in as County Commissioner

Jace Brooks will fill the rest of the Shirley Lasseter's term on the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners.

All seats in the Gwinnett County Commission will be filled by their next meeting on Tuesday. 

On Friday, the county announced Jace Brooks will be sworn in as District 1 Commissioner on Monday. He will complete the term of Shirley Lasseter who resigned in May after pleading guilty to accepting bribes.

Brooks was the only candidate who qualified for the special election in November to finish Lasseter's term. He is also running unopposed for the full four-year term in the general election.

“We are pleased to have the board at full strength again and wholeheartedly welcome Commissioner Brooks to the commission," said Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash in a release. "He will play an important role as we deal with the issues facing Gwinnett County."

Brooks is a former Suwanee City Council member and is a past president of the Gwinnett Municipal Association. He currently is a financial planner with Summit Wealth Management. His wife Kirste is a teacher in Gwinnett County Public Schools. They are the parents of 11 year old twins.
