“Jan Mixon should be honored for her longtime work within the City. She lives in the Drayton Woods subdivision and has been very involved in community activities.
Decades ago, a year after the Drayton Woods pool won the County swim championship, a decision was made to close the pool due to limited membership. I served as President of DWRC during these next tenuous years. Jan, along with a few other residents, took the initiative to reopen the recreation club by expanding membership coverage and member safety responsibility at the Club. These actions resulted in increased members at a refurbished pool. Return of young families improved participation and market values of the area. As President of DWRC, Jan brought high energy to the Club’s revitalization.
In addition, Jan served as the community contact for residents south of downtown. Her resource list for the Idlewood Coalition of Neighborhoods (ICON) became a most valuable tool to inform residents of actions taking place prior to and after the formal creation of the new City of Tucker. This asset continues to be an efficient contact point for Council Monferdini and me in District 2.
Even with a very busy personal schedule, Jan agreed to become a member of the Tucker Community Council. She was active in enlisting feedback from residents and businesses concerning issues and actions being proposed in the City. The Community Council is a most valuable asset to the City Council as a whole.
Recently Jan had to resign her position on the Community Council. She will, however, continue her liaison role with ICON and will be a positive contributor to the growth of the City.
Jan Mixon is being honored for her long-time commitment to our City. I know her involvement will continue.”
