July 24, 2007 was my last day as the Fulton County Attorney. They say you should see the end from the beginning, and I had certainly planned for that day. However, nothing prepared me for the out-pouring of love that I received during what turned out to be a three day celebration. More about that later.
I certainly wanted to have a personal keepsake to remind me of my days at Fulton County so I designed Good Things are Happening as a personal quilt memento. The name comes from the slogan that my personal commissioner, Bill Edwards, uses to describe District 7. It measures 47 x 52 inches and depicts the Fulton County logo.
The rest of my planning involved giving away several quilts at my retirement party. Each are featured on this site. However, I could not have known about the love gifts that I would receive. Some of those will be featured here as well.
I guess retirement is right up there with graduation and marriage, so indulge me as I share my big moment.
