Citizen of the Month - Derik West

derik-west“I would like to nominate Derik West for InTucker Magazine’s Citizen of the Month. Derik has always been an active supporter of the City, he attends all of the volunteer run festivals on Main Street and the City events, too. If there is a clean-up day or any opportunity to serve his community, Derik is there. Since incorporating the City over three years ago, he has attended almost every City Council meeting and stays abreast of all the current issues. Derik was a graduating member of the first University of Government Affairs in Tucker, Class of 2019 and more recently, I had the privilege of working side by side with him on the Tucker City Charter Review Committee.

The committee was made up of nine residents from all over the City, nominated by the Mayor, City Council and state lawmakers. We were tasked with no easy feat of reviewing the City’s charter and coming up with possible changes to recommend to the Mayor and Council. Derik was a delight to work with and, when asked to chair the committee, he graciously accepted. As the Chair of the committee, he diligently worked to keep us on point and moving forward, while at the same time making it an enjoyable process.

Derik truly loves the City of Tucker and lives the Tucker Way with his whole heart. He is excited about the growth and potential that the City has and is proud to be a resident and play a positive role. I am so proud to nominate Derik as our Citizen of the Month. He is a great role model to all of us.”
