To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to Brooke Pettis Newby, in-house counsel for the City of Perry, on her appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as a member of the state’s Certificate of Need Appeal Panel.
All Georgians will benefit from Ms. Newby’s service on the panel, which conducts appeals hearings to review initial decisions by the Georgia Department of Community Health to grant or deny a Certificate of Need application from a healthcare facility or service.
By accepting this appointment, Ms. Newby demonstrates her continued commitment to public service. We wish her well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
