Tony Guisasola has been named to the Georgia DDS Board of Directors.

The Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) has announced four new board members who have been appointed to the DDS Board of Directors, including Dawson County man Tony Guisasola and former Dawson County Chamber of Commerce President Christie Moore.

According to a press release by the DDS, the nine-member board of directors is made up of appointees by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan and Speaker of the House David Ralston. Members on the board help to make policies for the department and approve all rules and regulations made by the DDS commissioner. 

“I believe these new members’ unique perspective and expertise will serve us well on the board, and I look forward to working with them on many DDS initiatives,” DDS Commissioner Spencer R. Moore said in the release. 

Among the four appointees is Dawson County business owner Tony Guisasola. Guisasola spent 32 years as a teacher and principal, and has been involved in all aspects of K-12 public school education. He currently works as a farmer and operates MrG Blueberry Farm. 

Also among the appointees is former president of the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce, Christie Moore. Moore served for eight years in Dawson County before leaving in late 2020 to begin serving as the president and chief executive officer of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce. 

Guisasola and Moore will be joined on the DDS board by the other two new appointees, Sheriff Frank Reynolds from Cherokee County and Kat Satterfield from Fulton County.
