Sharon Dickson has been named as Sandy Springs Assistant Solicitor.

According to the city, Judge James Anderson presided over the swearing-in ceremony on Oct. 17.

“She previously served as Senior Assistant Solicitor at the DeKalb County Solicitor General’s Office and has worked with the Gwinnett County and City of Atlanta Solicitor’s offices,” a city press release says. “Dickson is a graduate of the University Of Miami School Of Law and earned her Bachelor’s degree in political science from Spellman College.”

Dickson replaces Jane Morrison, who left the post when she was elected as a Fulton County State Judge in August.
