CSD Legislative Forum – Tomorrow Night 6:30p

Hildreth forwards this note from the City Schools of Decatur…

In an effort to inform our CSD parents and community of the discussions related to impending legislation, City Schools of Decatur will be hosting a legislative forum on Thursday, February 26, 2009.

The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Central Office at Westchester, located at 758 Scott Boulevard, Decatur, GA 30030. Members of our legislative delegation will be present at this meeting to discuss various legislative topics and to answer community questions. Panelists include: Angela Palm (GSBA), Representative Stacey Abrams, Representative Stephanie Stuckey Benfield and CSD Board Member John Ahmann. We hope that you will be able to join us for this important panel discussion.

I followed up with Maria at CSD and got this additional bit of info about this session…

The superintendent wanted to hold a forum that would give the community an opportunity to hear from our local representatives about upcoming legislation related to education (this could be any number of topics). The panelists will have an opportunity to speak about legislation that they feel is important to our community and in turn, community members will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions about legislative topics. The panel will be moderated by CSD board member Mr. John Ahmann.

Oh, if only Sonny would come to town and we could ask him our questions!  Actually that raises an interesting point….Has anyone ever seen Sonny Perdue inside the Decatur city limits?  Has he ever snuck in for some fried chicken at Watershed?  (I wouldn’t think Scott Peacock would be as willing to hand-deliver fried chicken to the Gov as he was for Martha Stewart at the aquarium!)
