Fashion Faux Pas by DeKalb Delegation

Everyone in the Dirty South knows not to wear white before Memorial Day, not to wear a backwards ball cap in church, and not to wear stripes during redistricting.  Here are the maps presented by the DeKalb Delegation (the elected State Senators and House Representatives from DeKalb County).  If these jokers were not elected officials but instead Pre-K students this would be funny.  The DeKalb school board spent the majority of their recent retreat not discussing children or teachers, but how to get reelected.  Their retreat focused on maps and lines and trying to get each other back in office.  Remember, the FIRST action of this elected appointed school board was to buy textbooks pencils computers new cars for staff. I often think this Board is worse than the group tossed by the Governor.  Thurmond is Elgart's tool and the Board members are his minions.  And State Legislators can't figure out why we want DeKalb and other mega districts reorganized into smaller districts?  If the Mike Jacobs maneuver sticks, this may be the single event that keeps Ms. Catherine at bay and keeps Mike in office.

And finally, John Coleman can you please tell us why the dual accreditation issue was pulled from the agenda at the last retreat?

Nice Try #2

Nice Try #1

For clarification, not all of the DeKalb delegation voted for this map. Reps Taylor, Jacobs, Oliver, and Holcomb were all opposed to it.

Glad that Jacobs has a fix for this, but still leaves more questions. How did we get to this point in the first place? Why didn't they take care of this before this year? Who dropped the ball?

I agree with Anon 3:01 PM. Jacobs and fran dropped the ball big time and id not get this taken care of last year. I hope the blonde wins. Fran Miller will have a tea party challenger from Dunwoody.
