The honorable Jeffrey E. Turner, Chairman of the Clayton County Board of Commissioners is hosting the 4th Annual Chairman Turner’s International Ball. This prestigious event will celebrate the rich heritage and diversity within Clayton County. Clayton County is home to numerous nationalities as well as international businesses with over 60 languages spoken throughout the county.
