Harold Jenkins, Vice Chairman
Harold Jenkins was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) to represent the citizens of District 4, beginning in January of 2013.
Jenkins has been a resident of Henry County since 1987, so he has seen many changes in his community during those years. He hopes to support the Authority's efforts to keep up with those changes that occur from quality growth through economic development in the county.
â€œAs our county continues to grow and develop, we need to maintain the solid foundation provided by this (Water Authority) board, while generating fresh ideas to promote quality growth,â€ he says. â€œMy goal is to be a positive contributor to those efforts, while assisting the board, management, and employees, in any way I can as we seek to keep our water resources efficient and beneficial for our changing environment.â€
A native Georgian, Jenkins spent part of his life in Cocoa Beach, Florida, but upon his return to metro Atlanta, he began a career in the insurance industry in 1975. He currently is the owner of the Jenkins Agency, providing his clients with auto, home, and business insurance products and services. He worked 21 years out of an office in Stockbridge, before recently relocating his business to McDonough. He says the move has provided an opportunity to see more people and interact more closely within an expanding professional network he is developing within his community.
Jenkins says he hopes to bring professional experience, with an understanding of the nature and needs of both residential and commercial customers of the HCWA, as a result of working for nearly four decades with both residents and businesses within the county.
â€œIt is an honor and a privilege to serve on such a board as the HCWA, because this organization is so vital to our county,â€ he adds.
Jenkins and his wife Jenny have been married for more than 39 years and live in the Kelleytown area. He says they especially enjoy spending time with their three grown children and five grandchildren
