Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver and Georgia Health Sciences University President Ricardo Azziz have again made Georgia Trend magazine’s list of 100 most influential Georgians.

Copenhaver, the only Augusta elected official to be included, was recognized by the magazine for his work in community redevelopment and the creation of new “public spaces” in Augusta, according to a news release from mayor’s assistant Karyn Nixon.

Copenhaver, 44, was named one of 20 “change makers” in city design by the American Architectural Foundation during 2011, it stated.
