Rev. David Park, lead pastor at Open Table Community
E.P. “Pete” Walker, president and CEO of the DeKalb County Housing Authority

Shelly Simmons, CEO of the Statewide Independent Living Council

Councilmember Linley Jones proposed the Task Force after the council received a letter in June from local faith leaders urging the council to consider affordable housing as it addresses the city’s rapid growth and development.
