Giving out awards is how the Chamber of Communists garners support and donations for their Republican party. They are who really run this country which is why they've been given over $500,000. tac payer dollars wirhout any accountability. Gwinnett - a Magnet for corruption.

Yes, and the C of C does this for good PR for itself. It needs to heal some of the damage done when people figured out that money designated as going to education on our property tax bills was actually going to the C of C in an underhanded money laundering operation. Corruption runs to the very core of Gwinnett. It is in our blood. Mrs. Nash can't and won't tackle it.
