The Southwest Gwinnett Chamber hosted The mayors from the tri-city area in a panel discussion and judging by the response of both the attendees and the mayors, this may become a regular event. The panel featured Mayor Lois Salter from Berkeley Lake, Bucky Johnson from Norcross, and Mayor Mike Mason from Peachtree Corners. The mayors all provided both insight and humor in answering questions about issues that impacted not only their city but the Southwestern Gwinnett area. 

Moderated by Mr. J.K. Murphy, Editor of the Gwinnett Daily News, the questions were presubmitted by the community and selected by Mr. Murphy focusing on the state of their city and quality of life issues including transportation, new developments and transportation.
