Dometrice "Dee" Clemmons has been working in providing public service to families in Georgia for more than a decade because she believes in giving back to her community. Dee earned her Bachelor’s degree from Spelman College and decided to change course from attending law school to pursuing a career in education. After enjoying a successful career in education as a middle school teacher, in 1993 Dee went on to satisfy her entrepreneurial spirit, gaining experience as a business consultant in developing public service programs, creating jobs, providing turn around services for failing business and running her own companies.
Dee’s success has provided her with the leadership skills and business acumen to lead Henry County. Her introduction to government was through her experience on the First Board of the White House Points of Light Foundation where she created programs to engage college students in public service. During her campaign to win the District 2 seat of the Henry County Commission, she educated and engaged citizens in government by leading a mission that gave a voice to the people through social media, homeowners meetings and community forums. Dee won on a platform that demonstrated her commitment to public safety, and her efforts to addressing infrastructure challenges, attracting high paying, quality jobs, working with the public schools to ensure quality education and creating quality of life initiatives for all of Henry County. Dee is the first African American woman elected to serve on the Henry County Board of Commissioners, and although she is a dedicated wife and mother of two daughters, Dee is committed to working for the citizens and businesses to make Henry County a great place to live and work.
