Hall County Commissioner Bell selected for foreign policy delegation to Israel

Gainesville, GA --  Hall County Commissioner Ashley D. Bell will leave Sept. 5 for Israel as part of a national delegation of emerging American leaders. Commissioner Bell was selected by the American International Education Foundation, the educational arm of American Israel Public Affairs Committee that funds the trip concentrating on foreign policy.

"I have always been a strong supporter of Israel and am humbled by their invitation to learn more about domestic and foreign policy, as well as take some time to visit the Holy Land,” Commissioner Bell said. “As a Christian, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I feel blessed to be able to take this time to also focus on my faith in such a historic setting."

Participants will include elected officials, civic leaders and political activists who seek to gain an in-depth understanding of modern Israel. This intensive educational seminar will explore critical foreign policy and national security issues affecting both Israel and the United States. The program will include discussions with current and former Israeli government officials, Palestinian Authority representatives and leading academics and journalists.

Republican Ashley D. Bell, a Hall County native, was elected in 2008 at age 27 to become Hall County's youngest ever Commissioner and one of the youngest in the State of Georgia. Commissioner Bell has been involved in politics his entire adult life being active in local, state and national politics in various capacities from policy consulting to advocacy work on behalf of all young Americans.
