Laureen Monica Boles for 8th District Chatham County Commissioner


Laureen Monica Boles, proud Savannah native, daughter of the Historic Carver Village, and tireless advocate for the community, has declared her bid for Chatham County Commission District 8. She pledges to leverage her three decades of government and nonprofit service to advance housing security, economic inclusivity, and environmental justice.

During her tenure as a stormwater engineer and city planner, she has built affordable housing for seniors, created hundreds of jobs, funded workforce development programs, and co-authored the Environmental Justice Act—which was reintroduced in the 2021 session of Congress.

“I am running to serve as Chatham County Commissioner in District 8 to ensure that the residents, businesses and institutions in Chatham County reap the economic benefits of living and working in port cities, while being safeguarded from the accompanying traffic congestion with timely, infrastructure investments.”

Ms. Boles’ roots run deep in this community. She is a graduate of Savannah State University’s nursery school and kindergarten program, Cathedral Day School, and Saint Vincent’s Academy. An academic scholarship took her beyond our city’s majestic oaks and cobblestone streets, to the esteemed halls of Howard University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. Her scholarly quest continued at the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning. She returned home to Savannah, bringing with a wealth of experience and an unwavering commitment to serve. As a board member and treasurer of the Savannah-Chatham County Metropolitan Planning Commission, she is at the heart of shaping the future of our cherished community.

“I ask for your support as we continue to build a Chatham County that cherishes its past while boldly embracing its future. Together, let’s continue the work of making our beloved city a beacon of progress, inclusivity, and sustainability. Join me in this mission, for the love of Chatham County.”
