Tonight's event, two town halls, and an update


I wanted to remind you that tonight I'll be joining a group of citizens, elected officials (including Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst), and Democratic candidates at Marlow's Tavern, 3575 Durden Drive, Brookhaven from 6-8 PM. At about 7:00, I will present a very brief recap of the legislative session.

On Monday, April 30th, I am holding a town hall meeting at the Chamblee Civic Center from 6:30-7:30 PM. We will start and end on time. I will present a fuller recap of the 2018 legislative session and also answer your questions.

Monday, May 7th, I'm holding a joint town hall meeting with Reps. Mary Margaret Oliver and Michele Henson at Henderson Middle School from 6:30-7:45 PM. We will talk about the 2018 legislative session and hear from you on a variety of community issues.

I hope we have a chance to meet up at one, two or all three of these events.

Many thanks,
