Commissioner Edmonson Statement on the death of Georgia Ayers


(MIAMI, FL) – “My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and many friends of Georgia Ayers, a pioneer, fighter and stalwart supporter of Miami-Dade County’s most precious resource, our youth.  We mourn her passing but are grateful that she, through the Alternative Programs and her personal intervention in the lives of troubled youths, made an effort, day in and day out, to help our children find the right path.  We lost a tremendous contributor to the wellbeing of our community’s and this nation’s future,” said Commissioner Audrey Edmonson.
