Gay Atlanta City Councilman Alex Wan will sit on the Public Safety Committee during the 2011 session. The first scheduled meeting of the Public Safety Committee was this morning.
Glen Paul Freedman, Chair of the Atlanta Police Department’s LGBT Advisory Board, said today that Wan’s addition to the Public Safety Committee was a welcome move by the City Council.
“This will be helpful to the members of the LGBT APD Advisory Group and our community to have Alex's voice on this important committee,” Freedman said in a statement released today.
Wan will also sit on the Community Development / Human Resources and the Finance / Executive Committees. He was not a previous member of the Public Safety Committee.
