From the desk of FCTA's Executive Director
April 20, 2020
I want to take just a minute and say thanks to many in our local community. I have seen many disasters in my 36 years of public service career in this community, but never anything like the COVID-19 crisis. This Pandemic has changed our lives in ways no other disaster or crisis most of us have ever lived through.
As with any crisis, we have people in every community that step up and hit home runs. The Police, Fire, EMS Staff, Health Care Workers, Emergency Management and Local Leaders do an amazing job in any crisis or emergency. During this Pandemic, we have seen grocery store employees, truck drivers, delivery drivers, post office staff, food service workers and retail businesses, to just name a few, do an amazing job to serve our community. We have seen Teachers, School Leaders, Parents and Students make some incredibly unique education changes.
I want to take just a minute and say THANKS to the staff at Fulton County Transit. We have an extremely limited staff dunning this Pandemic, but they have unselfishly still preformed Life Sustaining trips, Senior Citizens Meal Delivery, Pharmacy trips, Grocery Store trips and getting people to Essential jobs in the 4 Counties we serve. They still get up before the sun comes up and get people to dialysis and cancer treatment with a smile behind the mask they have on during this Pandemic. We have had many of the employees that we have had to lay off call and check on our clients and wanting to be at work taking care of the clients we serve. I can truly add a hash tag to a group of people proudly serving our community. #teamfctatransit !! Thanks for what you all do every day!!
Thanks to everyone working to serve our community.
