One of Georgia’s

Most Trained County Commissioners


  • I will listen.

    Voters want someone to represent them who they trust and trust begins with listening. I will continue to bring fairness to issues as we work for the diverse citizens of Gwinnett to have a place at the table to continue to work through important issues.

  • I will put public safety first.

    If our neighborhoods aren’t safe, Gwinnett citizens will leave. The District Attorney’s Office, Courts, Police, and Fire Departments will all find a friend in me. They are at the bottom of the list for budget cuts.

  • I will work for financial responsibility

    We must preserve Gwinnett’s Triple AAA bond rating, provide essential government services like public safety, parks and programming.

  • I will communicate well and often.

    This is the most important part of being a County Commissioner. Meeting with neighborhood communities on important issues and keeping the line of communions open. The Dinner and Dialogue program is great way over a shared meal to hold a conversation about Gwinnett to generate new ideas and start formulating solutions.

  • I will meet you at the “kitchen table,” not the conference room.

    While I was President of the United Peachtree Corners Civic Association, I helped resolve the same issues common to us all: zoning, development and transportation. I am a community servant—not a politician.

  • I will deliver results.

    I have been successful because I was a trusted neighbor and friend. I listened and then responded to the community’s concerns…and I was accountable for putting our community vision first. Together, we got results!

"Lynette always ask 'Why not?', rather than 'Why?' Who can’t support someone like that?"

Commissioner Lynette Howard

As a resident and a business owner in Gwinnett County I am very proud to have a Commissioner like Lynette Howard. Lynette has always put Gwinnett County First. Lynette has the character, intellect, and discernment to make the right decisions for Gwinnett County. Not only am I confident in Lynette’s ability, but I also trust her with our wonderful community.
