Now in his 3rd term in office, Commissioner Billy Powell is continuing to push for a more efficient government and better service to citizens in Hall County's day-to-day operations. Powell, a Hall County native, is a commercial realtor with Hokayem Company. He holds a degree in Industrial Engineering and has more than 2 decades of project management experience. That experience plays a key role as he works with staff to implement solutions and as he listens to his constituents' ideas and concerns.

As a member of the Hall County Board of Commissioners, Mr. Powell is active in ongoing SPLOST infrastructure projects and strives to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars. He worked hard to make sure that the largest construction project ever undertaken in Hall County, the $54-million jail facility, was completed on time and under budget in 2007.

Commissioner Powell and his wife, Helen, are parents of daughters Carolyn and Molly and their son Will. The Powells are active members of Gainesville First United Methodist Church.
