Today on March 14, 2018 I join thousands of high school students as we remember students and families of the Parkland shooting. The House Democratic Caucus held a press conference to honor the 17 students. I stand is solidarity with the family of Nicholas Dworet, a 17 year old student who was a victim of the Parkland shooting.
Please join me, Sen. Nan Grogan Orrock, and Rep. Park Cannon for a Town Hall meeting on Feb. 26th at 7:00 pm at Grady High School. The Fulton County Chief Appraiser, Dwight Robinson, will also be present for our discussion. We will address property assessments and other topics of interests. We hope to see you there.
On Tuesday, February 6th, I held a press conference to discuss partisan redistricting in Georgia. Over 40 members of the public attended the event to express their support for redistricting reform. Following the press conference, The House Reapportionment Committee held a hearing on HR 3. Please view and share the live committee hearing, here. Your efforts to continue to educate the public are crucial. An educated public will demand that we have an accurate census count in 2020 and a fair redistricting process in 2021. Thanks for your support. A huge thank you to Common Cause, LWV, ACLU, NAACP, the several voters for your fight for fair districts! I cannot do this without any of you!
