www.PopcornandPolitics.com As the seat of Gwinnett County, the second largest county in Georgia, I foresee the City
of Lawrenceville as a thriving and bustling city of the future. By this, I mean Lawrenceville has
the potential to be a city serving as an example for other small municipalities. Lawrenceville
sits in a minority majority county, with citizens of diverse cultures, diverse ethnicities, diverse
languages, diverse religions, and diverse philosophical thinking. The rich landscape of diversity
is our true value proposition. The unique selling point we establish for the city is driven by
collective input, ideas, and contributions made by all who have a genuine vested interest in
Lawrenceville. We progress successfully because contributions to the growth and evolution of
Lawrenceville are made by many people of varying perspectives and backgrounds, not by those
who look and think the same, and adhere to the old status quo. The right investors
(stakeholders), those who wish to grow a city reflective of its beautiful and rich diverse
composition, will choose to do business with and in Lawrenceville, as they shall recognize the
opportunity to help positively impact the lives of all residents, without partiality to any one
particular and privileged group. This is extremely important and must be recognized and
respected. Our city has a clear responsibility to continue growing and developing as a model
for authentic diversity, inclusion, and fairness, while accepting of all who wish to do business in,
play in, shop in, and live in Lawrenceville, regardless of socio-economic status, skin complexion,
the language we speak, how we pray, and who we choose to love. This is OUR city, the people’s
city. My vision for Lawrenceville is a city open to all who wish to embrace it as their own. This
is how we move Lawrenceville forward and qualify it to be a city of the future
