Chairman of Fulton County Board of Commissioner Robb Pitts delivered his State of the County address on Tuesday. 

“Ladies and gentlemen - I really have just one thing to tell you and that is Fulton County is a big deal,” stated Pitts. 

In his speech at Flourish, Pitts highlighted the success and challenges of the county. He announced plans for a new county animal shelter, expansions at Charlie Brown Field, and strategies to end the HIV epidemic. 

“Simply put, the continuation of this epidemic is unacceptable and must be stopped. That is why Fulton County has partnered with the Elton John AIDS Foundation to end AIDS in Fulton County by 2030.”

The county’s top elected official believes the day will come soon when there will be a casino and horse racing in Fulton County. Pitts also spoke on the possibility of trades with nations like India and Qatar, and hopes of the county being the gateway to Cuba.

It was Pitts’s first state of the county speech since being elected to a full term in November 2018.
