Atlanta businesswoman Stacey Key, president of GBK Enterprises Inc., was elected to the State Transportation Board last week, winning a seat from 20-year veteran board member Emory McClinton.
Key, whose company owns and operates a local Bruster’s Real Ice Cream restaurant, is also president and CEO of the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council Inc., which promotes opportunities for minority-owned businesses with state agencies and local governments.
Key will represent Georgia’s 5th Congressional District, which includes Atlanta, part of southern DeKalb County and northern Clayton County.
Also elected to the DOT Board Thursday was former state Sen. Dan Moody of Johns Creek, who will represent the suburban 6th Congressional District, which takes in North Fulton, North DeKalb and East Cobb counties.
Moody will fill a vacancy left by Brandon Beach, who was elected to the state Senate last month.
DOT Board member Dana Lemon of McDonough was re-elected recently to represent the 13th Congressional District, which stretches through parts of Henry, Clayton, Fayette, Fulton, Douglas and Cobb counties. This will be Lemon’s third five-year term.
State Transportation Board members are elected by members of the General Assembly, whose legislative districts falls within their congressional district.
