Senate and House Representatives to Attend Upcoming Cliftondale Town Hall Meeting

Hear from the Legislative Members of the Georgia General Assembly that are elected to represent Cliftondale and South Fulton County

Cliftondale Community Club is a non-political, civic organization formed to enrich and encourage development of the Cliftondale Community through non-profit service. They have invited all of our local elected officials to a Town Hall Meeting on February 23, 2013, 10:00 AM at the Cliftondale Art Center Auditorium, 4645 Butner Road.

Invited guests include:

  • Senator-Donzella James,                              
  • Senator-Horicena Tate,                              
  • House Representative-Roger Bruce,
  • House Representative-Sharon-Beasley Teague,                              
  • House Representative-LaDawn Jones                               
  • House Representative Virgil Fludd

Some of the longstanding issues will be discussed including the future of South Fulton County and how it will evolve, and also community issues with Hartsfield-Jackson airport and the Camp Creek business district.

The latest issue that is sure to be discussed are House Bills 170 and 171.  House Bill 171, in particular, if passed will force Commissioner Bill Edwards and Commissioner Emma Darnell to fight for the same seat, and gives residents less representation.  In a video on Cascade Patch,   She urges community members to come to the public hearing and sign petitions letting the Republican controlled assembly know that "the People are against these bills."

Another Cliftondale Community meeting will be held on March 11th in which District 7, Fulton County Commissioner,  William "Bill" Edwards will discuss the State of the County.

The second reconstruction and continued Civil War is anything but Civil. Georgia can do better than this. Citizens must wake up and vote like your life depends upon it. Majority rule is killing the progress of our ancestors in a mean spirited way. If you do not remember your history you will be doomed to relive it. Well we are reliving the struggle for recognition as more than 3/5 of a human being!!!

Calm down. Everyone wants a level playing field. Fulton is 48 percent white. 44 percent black. White people count too even if you don't agree with them. Also don't assume that white liberals support Darnell. A few years back she labeled gay people as shacking up and now has a large majority gay population. Not too mention many other decisive things. Term limits is what you should be demanding. Life long pols on all sides is what is dragging down change.

Plus there will be a new Minority district for an African American to run for. This is all about saving ones career, not about "the people"
