Dana Barrett
Commissioner, District 3
Fulton County

Dana Barrett is the Fulton County Commissioner representing District 3 which includes all of Buckhead, and parts of both Sandy Springs and Midtown.

Elected to office in November 2022, Commissioner Barrett is committed to serving the people of Fulton County by focusing on key issues and communicating regularly with the public. Her priorities include addressing criminal justice reform, public safety, public health, and ensuring that our county government is transparent, accessible, ethical, and efficient.

A former tech executive, small business owner, award-winning TV, radio, and podcast host, and working single Mom, Dana has always been an outspoken advocate for equality and ethics and a determined self-starter. A graduate of Cornell University, Dana moved to Atlanta in 1988 and began her career in technology working with clients. She quickly became a self-taught programmer and eventually worked her way up to Vice President. With few options for women in tech leadership, Dana became an entrepreneur, starting her own tech consulting firm and later opening a bookstore/coffee shop on Canton Street in Roswell.

In 2010, when her daughter left for college, Commissioner Barrett felt called to do work that had a bigger impact, so she switched gears again parlaying her business and technology experience into a daily talk radio show where she used her platform to tackle difficult conversations around ethics, gender, and race. Passionate about supporting women and minority led businesses and exposing workplace inequities, Dana included regular interview segments on her show and appeared several times as a guest on HLN to discuss sexual harassment and the gender pay gap. She has written for Forbes, hosted a TV show on Atlanta’s NBC affiliate, and in 2020 she was the Democratic nominee for Congress in Georgia’s 11th District.

Active in the community, Dana serves on the board of Inspiredu, a non-profit that works to bridge the digital divide, and after surviving breast cancer herself became the official spokesperson for TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation where she now also serves on the board.
