Nina Hickson Named East Point Interim City Manager

Nina Hickson

East Point City Attorney Nina Hickson was recently named Interim City Manager for the City of East Point. Crandall Jones, the foremer City Manage, left at the end of the year. Nina will serve as the Interim City Manager until the Mayor and City Council choose a permanent City Manager.

Susan Garrett,  who is Nina’s assistant in the City Attorney’s Office, will perform the duties of the City Attorney during this period of transition. I will assist the City Attorney’s Office during the transition.

Congratulations to Nina! Earning the confidence of elected officials speaks volumes about her legal and interpersonal skills.

East Point City Council Training

Recently I was honored to be asked by City Attorney Nina Hickson and City Manager Crandall Jones to make a presentation to the East Point City Council during its annual retreat. I spoke to the Council on the topic of Council / Staff relations. I titled my paper Would You Act Like That In Front of Your Grandmother?! (How Good Council/Staff Relations Can Minimize Public Risk and Improve Public Image).

I illustrated my presentation  with quilts to show that each person is part of a bigger picture. Shown here is my quilt Fulton County Attorneys which is a signature quilt made during my tenure as the Fulton County Attorney. Each staff member signed a block in the quilt.
