With her husband and children by her side, newly-elected District 1 Commissioner Nancy Jester was sworn in to office today (Dec. 8) by Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh at the Maloof Auditorium in Decatur.

Jester says she is ready to get to work and promises to improve disclosure and accessibility. She will attend her first board meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 9, 10 a.m.

“I’m looking forward to offering a fresh start in DeKalb. I was elected to get to work and that¹s what I’m going to do. We have to rebuild credibility and trust in District 1 and I¹m here to do just that,” said Jester, who is a former DeKalb County Schools board member. “I’m looking forward to supplying new levels of disclosure and accessibility for District 1 and all of DeKalb. We are working on a new web site to debut soon that will keep constituents up to date on everything DeKalb and how to stay in contact with me.”

Interim CEO Lee May officiated the ceremony.

“Today shows us that the county is beginning to move forward in the right decision and I’m excited about it, to have permanent leadership in District

1,” said May. “Nancy and I planned to talk yesterday and we ended up going back and forth and exchanging ideas for about two hours. I look forward to working with her and more conversations like that one.”
