A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMISSIONER

It has been my privilege

 ...and honor to serve you on the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners for over 20 years. During these past two decades, I have developed a wealth of experience and knowledge of all levels of government. The past three and a half years have brought challenges that most of us could never have imagined, but we have risen to meet these challenges and are now a stronger community because of them. Together we have shown great strength and resilience.  I am committed to continuing the work I began in 2003 during my first year in office to deliver “Results You Can See.” We will move DeKalb to the next level and create real change from action, not just words.


I bring experience, engagement and effective leadership to all that I do, and I am committed to unifying the people of DeKalb. I have the vision and plans to create a better, safer, stronger DeKalb that thrives! With your help, this vision will become a reality with me as your next CEO of DeKalb County.


We have come a mighty long way; however, there is still work to do. Please use the donate button to support my campaign to become the next CEO of DeKalb County and help create "A Better...Safer...Stronger DeKalb that thrives!"  

For a Prosperous DeKalb,

Larry Johnson
