Deanna Dickinson, a Georgia native and Dawson County resident since 2017, has qualified to run for the Dawson County Board of Commissioners District 3 seat. 

According to information provided by Dickinson, she was raised in Douglas County before moving to Dawson County in 2017. She has been in the dental industry for 40 years, working in clinical for 18 years followed by a Fortune 500 Dental Supply Company for 15 years during which time she helped more than 25 dentists build new dental properties in the metro Atlanta area before starting her own business in Dawsonville. 

Currently, Dickinson owns her own small business, Team DMD Consulting, and has her commercial real estate license through Keller Williams Community Partners which she uses to help dentists and doctors buy and sell their businesses and properties. 

If elected, Dickinson said through her website that she would do her best to represent the citizens of the county through her seat on the board of commissioners. 

“I vow, if elected, to represent the citizens of Dawson County to the best of my ability,” Dickinson said on her campaign website. “It is important to bring balanced growth to provide long-term benefits to incentivize our farming community, retired seniors and our career-minded Dawsonville citizens.” 

According to Dickinson’s campaign site, she believes in seat and balanced growth and, if elected, plans to work to set a strategic plan to help the economy and the Dawsonville way of life. She said that her first concern is getting the proper infrastructure in place along with the safety of the Dawson County citizens. 

In addition to balancing that growth, Dickinson said that she plans to help make the healthcare system better for Dawson County citizens. 

“Today if you have an accident or medical emergency, the nearest hospital or emergency room is approximately 15 miles away from Dawson County,” Dickinson said on her campaign site. “Together, I believe we can create a better healthcare system while also creating better jobs for the Dawson County citizens!” 

She added that she plans to work with Parks and Recreation, the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Kiwanis and other local clubs to enhance the community. 

Dickinson is married to her husband Barret and has two adult daughters, a son-in-law and a new granddaughter. She said that her faith and the power of prayer is very important to her. When she’s not working, she enjoys being with her family, cooking with her husband, playing tennis and spending time with friends on Lake Lanier.
