Robert Patrick
 DeKalb County
 District 1 

Robert Patrick is no stranger to public service, and he brings extensive experience to DeKalb County’s Board of Commissioners.

Prior to his 2020 election win, Commissioner Patrick served as a council member with the City of Doraville for eight years. In 2012, he won a special election to Doraville’s City Council representing District 1, where he was subsequently re-elected twice. During his time in office, Robert was selected by his colleagues to serve as Mayor Pro Tem for three consecutive years.

Robert also served as both the vice-president and president of the DeKalb Municipal Association. He took part in North End transportation studies, the Doraville Comprehensive Plan Update, the creation of the first Parks and Walkability Master Plan, and the first Buford Highway Livable Centers Initiative. Additionally, for 14 years, Robert served as a planner with the City of Norcross in the Community Development Department.

Robert has demonstrated his ability to lead and serve as a strategic and responsible steward in his community where growth and collaboration lead his priorities. Infrastructure investments, fostering strategic growth through economic investments, aiding in the fight to stop the spread of COVID-19 throughout the county, improving response times from county services, and strengthening relationships between the county and municipal leaders are his priorities as the representative of DeKalb County’s District 1. 

Commissioner Patrick is currently serving his second term as Presiding Officer of the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners (BOC) and serves on three committees: Public Works and Infrastructure (PWI), Finance, Audit, & Budget (FAB),and  Planning and Economic Development & Community Service (PECS) committees. He is also the first commissioner to be appointed by the DeKalb CEO as a board member and the BOC liaison to Decide DeKalb, the county’s economic development authority.

Robert holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Georgia.
