Augusta commissioner Lockett completes advanced training

  • Follow Government

Augusta Commissioner Bill Lockett was recognized in Atlanta over the weekend with a certificate of excellence for completing advanced leadership training sponsored by the Georgia Municipal Association.

“Training was great,” the retired federal and school system employee said. “Every class I’ve taken, I’ve learned something.”

Lockett joined Commissioner Jerry Brigham to become only the second sitting Augusta commissioner to complete the advanced training, a GMA spokeswoman said.

The recognition came at the end of the three-day Robert E. Knox Leadership Institute for Elected Officials sponsored by GMA and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government.

Lockett completes his first term as District 5 commissioner this year.

I think it is great when

I think it is great when anyone in a leadership position furthers their training and education, especially when it is not mandatory.

I certainly hope he learned something that he can bring back and use to benefit our area.

I think Mr. Lockett will use all that he learned. He is one of the best commissioners we currently have and is trying very hard to do the work of the people.
