Cloud declares for District 24 House Seat

By Pamela A. Keene
Joanna Cloud, executive director of the Lake Lanier Association, has declared her candidacy for the Georgia House of Representatives, District 24. The district represents Forsyth County. 
“At this stage in my life and my career, I’m ready to step up and take on this new role,” Cloud said. “I can leverage my experience, skill set and contacts for the community and the benefit of Lake Lanier. I feel that lake issues deserve a much higher level of focus in the state house, and with my network, I’ll be able to work for the lake and its surrounding counties.” 
Cloud has been a Forsyth County resident for the past 13 years. Following a career in software development, she joined the Lake Lanier Association as executive director in August 2010. She has been active in the local community through Rotary and as an officer in the Forsyth County Central High School Basketball Booster Club. She has also served in leadership roles in local PTO and school councils. 
Since she became director of the association, the organization’s annual income has more than tripled. Additionally, the group has increased its programs and public awareness. 
She is a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science degree in management. 
Cloud and her husband, Glenn, live in North Forsyth County. They have three children.

Campaign event
Cloud’s campaign will host an event on Monday, March 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Bello Italian Restaurant in downtown Cumming.
