Brantley Appointed Interim City Attorney of East Point

The Mayor and Council of the City of East Point appointed me to served as Interim City Attorney. Nina Hickson, the former City Attorney, was appointed Interim City Manager in January.

This appointment is temporary, and I expect it to last no longer than July 1, 2012. The City will not need my services full-time, so I will maintain my local government practice.

I am deeply humbled by the confidence the Mayor and City Council have placed in me. I am looking forward to my next adventure in public service.

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.
