ATLANTA, Ga. (September 9, 2019) – Tucker Mayor Frank Auman was tapped by Governor Brian Kemp Monday for a post on the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) Board. Auman, surrounded by friends and family, joined the board in an official ceremony in the governor’s office Monday afternoon. He brings a unique perspective to the board as the mayor of a city that sits both inside and outside the Perimeter, where thousands of cars, trucks, and buses flow each day.
“I’m very honored by the trust Governor Kemp has placed in me and I’m excited to get to work,” Auman said. “Transit and multi-modal transportation have become a priority for every city, and to have the opportunity to work on this board is significant.”
According to the GRTA website, it serves as “a state-level authority that addresses air quality and mobility in metro Atlanta…as well as serving as the Governor’s voice for strategic direction in transportation planning for Georgia’s most populous region. GRTA collaboratively leads Georgia’s effort to set clear expectations and specific goals for the performance of the state’s transportation network.”
