District 4 Commissioner
Henry County Board of Commissioners
Commissioner Blake Prince, EIT, PLS is a true son of Henry County, having grown up in the County’s fourth district where he still makes his home today. Blake’s commitment to public service began after high school when he joined the United States Air Force. While in the Air Force he was assigned to the USAF Civil Engineering Squadron and his mission in the military was to design, build and maintain military base infrastructure. He has worked on projects throughout the United States as well as abroad, and while serving his country, he earned a National Defense Service Medal for the role he played in Operation Desert Storm.
In 2001 Blake started a small team and began racing Superbikes as a hobby. In 2003 he went semiprofessional and in 2006 he turned full pro. In 2007, Blake’s Superbike team finished 10th in the Daytona 200. In 2009, after many great years and many accolades, he hung up his leathers for good, although racing remains very close to his heart.
Currently, Blake owns a third generation engineering and land surveying firm in downtown Stockbridge. He provides services to both the public and private sector and has been the design engineer on many projects throughout the county, including the design of the East Atlanta Rd. streetscape. He also provided engineering services for the Ted Strickland Community Center, the Merle Manders Conference Center, Liberty Park, Clark Park and Cochran Park, all in Stockbridge. Additionally, he offered engineering services to the Atlanta BeltLine and most recently, was the structural engineer on a 105 foot fire tower located in Clayton County.
Blake was educated at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, and holds degrees in Civil Engineering and Mathematics. While in college he was the captain of the competitive surveying team, president of the Young Republicans and an active member of the Baptist Student Union. Prior to being elected, Blake was in graduate school working toward his masters in Structural Engineering and plans to continue his studies in the future.
His dedication to public service continues with his position as a county commissioner. His priority will be to bring jobs to Henry County to help boost the economy and diversify the county’s tax base. His vision for Henry County is to have a healthy cross-section of diversified businesses, while holding true to the hometown feeling that makes Henry County such a wonderful place to live and work.
“As we look to the future of Henry County, I feel it is important to remember the past, live in the present, and plan for the future. With help from the citizens, I know we can make Henry County a place where our children will be proud to raise their families.”
As a public servant, he feels it important to be available to the public and welcomes input and feedback from the citizens. He has an open door policy and welcomes the public to stop by his office in Stockbridge, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or call anytime. J. B. Prince and Associates, Inc. is located at 110 N. Berry St. in Stockbridge; 770-474-1487.
