From the DeKalb Neighbor newspaper via the Decatur - Avondale Estates Patch: District 55 State Sen. Gloria Butler, D-Stone Mountain, was recently appointed to serve as chair of the Senate study committee on the incorporation of the city of DeKalb in DeKalb County.
Butler will be joined by a group of seven committee members, consisting of fellow legislators and local officials from DeKalb County.
“Throughout the committee process, it is important to remember that the people who live in our cities and counties share an underlying love for their community,” said Butler. “That resource alone needs to be heavily considered when deciding the future of local municipalities. I’m honored that the lieutenant governor has selected me to serve as chair of this committee, and look forward to hearing feedback from the people of DeKalb County.”
