Golden said, “Mike is a 25-year employee with the Department of Transportation. He began as an Engineering Technician in Metro Atlanta and has worked his way up, spending time in each Division of the Department. His cross-training and understanding of many aspects of DOT’s mission has made him an asset within DOT. He is committed to clear coordination between DOT and our Maintenance Contractors ensuring Georgia gets the best product from our contracts. Please join me in congratulating Mike Johnson for his outstanding career in Northeast Georgia’s District One.”

Johnson has worked with the Department of Transportation since 1987. He worked his way up through the ranks from his initial Engineering Technician position.

DAN AUGE'S AWARD

Golden said, “Dan treats fellow employees and customers with the upmost courtesy and respect. He has become known as 'Mr. Dependable' while working one of our busiest Counties, Gwinnett. Dan is a role model for other employees; joining in to help during emergency response situations along the interstate even though that isn’t his direct responsibility. Dan inspires them to work as a team to accomplish the work at hand. He leads by example and no task is too small or too difficult for him. Please join me in congratulating Dan Auge for his outstanding work in Northeast Georgia’s District One.”
