Following the recommendations of a committee of experts who are familiar with the functions of a municipal court and the functions of municipal court judges, the City of Doraville has hired three new judges to serve in its municipal court system. This committee, assembled by City Manager Chris Eldridge, was composed of the Honorable Angela Duncan, Albert Bolet, Esq, the Honorable Jane Morrison, and the Honorable Al Wong. City Attorney Cecil McLendon also helped facilitate the process. The newly hired judges are:
- Jennifer Mann, Chief Judge
- Vanessa Kosky, Associate Judge
- Chong Kim, Associate Judge
These new judges are reflective of the diversity that makes Doraville so unique. Mann and Kosky are both bilingual in English and Spanish and Kim serves as the President of the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association Law Foundation. All three of them possess extensive courtroom experience and bring unique perspectives to Doraville’s court system.
“Our hope was that the expert panel would identify a bench that is representative of our community,” said Mayor Joseph Geierman. “Mann, Kosky, and Kim are long time public servants whose skills and background make them ideal candidates for municipal service in Doraville. We are excited to welcome them here.”
