Cobb County District 4 Commissioner, and candidate for BOC chair, Lisa Cupid endorsed Monique Sheffield to replace her on the Cobb County Board of Commissioners.

Sheffield is in a run-off with Shelia Edwards scheduled for August 11. Edwards received the highest number of votes in the June 9 primary, but no one achieved the 50 percent + 1 vote needed to avoid a run-off.

Cupid wrote the following endorsement:

Please join me in supporting Monique Sheffield in the runoff for Cobb County District 4 Commissioner on August 11.  Monique has the experience, drive, vision and temperament for moving our district forward. 

Monique has firsthand knowledge of the unique character and potential across the district having lived in Austell, Powder Springs, and now Mableton. As a business owner in real estate for 17 years and as a District 4 appointee to Cobb County’s Board of Zoning Appeals she has demonstrated great skill and professionalism in partnering with residents, county staff and developers across the county.

Furthermore, Monique is committed to community, serving as president of her homeowners association, an advisory member to Lindley Middle School, an alumna of Cobb 101, and a volunteer with Keep Cobb Beautiful and Project Open Hand delivering meals to the elderly and those with chronic diseases.

I know Monique personally, and know her humble beginnings, care and commitment to our community will serve her well in serving all in District 4.
