Town Hall Meeting to Discuss the 2012 Legislative Session


Please join me next Thursday evening, January 5th, from 7-8:30 at Evansdale Elementary School for a town hall meeting to discuss the upcoming legislative session. If you have questions or if there are issues you would like to discuss, please send them to ann@repscottholcomb.com. Commissioner Jeff Rader and officers from the DeKalb Police Department will join us too.

Redistricting Update


Last Friday, the Department of Justice pre-cleared the State House, State Senate, and U.S. Congressional maps. As you know, I opposed the maps that were approved by the General Assembly because, among other reasons, they failed to respect communitites of interest in DeKalb County. I suspect there will be additional legal challenges to the maps. Regardless of what ultimately happens with the maps and the districts, I will continue to work hard to represent you at the Capitol. And I will keep fighting to improve our state.

Crime in our District


There have been a number of break-ins recently, to include several vehicle break-ins in the Northlake/Henderson Mill area. To read more about this in the Patch, click here. In fact, my own car was broken into this week at 8 AM while it was parked in my driveway, and while I was home. If you see anything suspicious, please contact the police.

CNN Appearance to Discuss the End of the Iraq War


I had the pleasure of appearing on CNN again to discuss the end of the Iraq War. While I have concerns about the political and domestic tension within Iraq, I support the end of the war. To read the transcript, click here.

Happy New Year!


Finally, I want to wish you and yours a very happy 2012! I hope you have a great year.
