To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Georgia Senate Majority Leader William S. Cowsert, a founding partner of Cowsert Heath LLP in Athens, on his recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve on the Georgia Board of Homeland Security.
All Georgians will benefit from Sen. Cowsert’s service on the board, which oversees the division of the Georgia Emergency Management & Homeland Security Agency responsible for terrorism preparedness, including programs encompassing critical training, intelligence gathering and analysis and homeland security grant services.
With his acceptance of this appointment, Sen. Cowsert demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public. We wish him well in this new position of statewide leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
