With 58 days left in office, Fulton County Commissioner Bill Edwards (D - Fairburn) is making some final appointments to certain boards and authorities while he still can.

Edwards, who lost his re-election bid to fellow Democrat Emma Darnell in May, nominated Debra Bazemore for a six-year term on the Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly Authority of Fulton County. The authority is charged with ensuring the adequacy of residential care facilities for citizens of Fulton County

Bazemore, age 56, currently serves as chairman of South Fulton United; an organization that is promoting the creation of a new city in unincorporated south Fulton County.

The Fulton County Commission will consider Bazemore's nomination at its 5 November 2014 meeting.

If Bazemore's nomination is confirmed by the Commission, she will receive a $100 stipend each time the Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly Authority of Fulton County holds a meeting.
