Press release from Alachua County

At last night’s annual meeting of the Greater Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, Alachua County Commissioner Ken Cornell received the Chamber’s President’s Award for his leadership as Commission Chair during the pandemic. The President’s Award is given at the President’s discretion to recognize an individual who has made an outstanding impact in our community and distinguished themselves as a leader in Greater Gainesville. 

“During the past two years, our businesses have struggled with pandemic rules and regulations changing frequently. I received and facilitated many calls and questions from various businesses and industries. There was one individual who was instrumental in helping us keep up to date and who worked with us to help our businesses succeed,” commented Chamber President and CEO Eric Godet. “We held innumerable calls and meetings, and it would have been a much more difficult task without the help of Alachua County Commissioner Ken Cornell. Ken made sure to include Chamber board leadership as well as the leadership of key industries and organizations during every conversation.”

“I was overwhelmed by this honor,” Cornell said. “I accepted this award on behalf of my colleagues on the Commission, staff, and all of the people and agencies that helped in our community’s exemplary response to the pandemic. I am so grateful to the Alachua County businesses that played a critical role in keeping our community safe.”
