Jessica N. Holmes:
A New Day, Changes and Challenges
Wake County Commission Chair Jessica N. Holmes will give us a brief overview of the commission’s roles and responsibilities and discussion of the board’s current priorities.
In November 2014, Ms. Holmes became the youngest commissioner ever elected in Wake County’s history.
She was re-elected to a second term as a commissioner and as chair of the board in November 2018 making her the youngest person to ever wield the gavel and one of a few women to do so in Wake County’s history. She represents over one million constituents as an at-large representative helping to manage a 1.2 billion dollar budget and an almost 4,000 person staff.
Wake County recognized last June as LGBT Pride Month.
Enjoy our networking cocktail hour. Then, 18 Seaboard will provide a buffet dinner for our group. There will be plenty of food and vegetarian options. A salad, entree, sides, and dessert will be provided. Beverages: Soda, Tea, or Water plus a full Cash Bar available with a wide selection of beer, wine, well drinks, and non-alcohol beverages.
