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.

Update on Testing the Backlog of Sexual Assault Evidence

As you may know, I have been working on the issue of untested sexual assault kits for the last few years. As this story notes, the state has made significant progress since the passage of Senate Bill 304.

Here is a link to the story and a short excerpt:

"We're in this position because the system failed, but I am encouraged we've taken action to fix it and we're making progress. But it never should have happened in the first place," said state Rep. Scott Holcomb, D-Atlanta, one of the sponsors of the 2016 legislation.

Many thanks,
