South DeKalb Residents Our Ticket to a Dunwoody School District? City of Stonecrest?

Residents in south DeKalb have joined the movement for a new city and possibly a new school district.

Here's a link to a story about the proposed City of Stonecrest. Senator Ronald Ramsey supports the idea, as do Sen. Jason Carter and Sen. Gail Davenport.  Not quite a "when pigs fly" scenario, but we  loo forward to Tom Taylor and Fran Millar meeting with Senator Ronald Ramsey and discussing something they can do together, as a team - pass legislation to allow us to vote on the Independent School District issue.

Not my map, but one "borrowed" from some guy in Tucker



City of Stonecrest would be lower right corner of the above map

Down in the southeast corner of DeKalb there is a movement to become a city.  Although not entirely, part of that movement is to separate from the DeKalb School System.  Depending on how the lines are drawn, the new city could include Arabia Mountain, a top DeKalb high school that is on par with Chamblee and Dunwoody high schools.  The city could also pick up the Miller Grove area. 

Hopefully Senator Fran Millar can discuss this city/Independent School District issue with Senator Ramsey.

Wait. Is this the same Ron Ramsey who boldly and loudly proposed on the floor of the State House to boycott the City of Dunwoody for forming a city?
