The appointment was announced by NLC President Mayor Vince Williams of Union City, Georgia.
“Doraville has deep experience with nearly every form of transportation, including trains, commuter rail, cars, and even airports,” said Geierman. “We also have renewed our focus on pedestrian and bike safety to make our city a leader in multimodal transportation. As a member of this committee, I’m now able to take what I have learned from our experiences in Doraville and share that knowledge with our federal leaders to drive our nation’s cities into the future.”
