As state lawmakers prepare to convene for the 2018 Georgia General Assembly session on Jan. 8, the DeKalb Delegation is hosting a series of community meetings.
State Rep. Howard Mosby, who chairs the DeKalb House Delegation, said the meetings will provide an opportunity for legislators to share updates, answer questions and receive input from the community on issues and concerns.
It’s really a listening session to hear from constituents,” said State Rep. Howard Mosby, who chairs the DeKalb Delegation. “We expect that we’ll be dealing with Emory’s annexation into Atlanta, cityhood of Greenhaven, transportation and MARTA.

Also, the ethics bill is under appeal. Casino gambling will likely come up this Session. According to informal polls, rural areas are more open to the idea than urban areas such as Atlanta, Macon, and Augusta, where there is the perception that it generates crime.
The Delegation has scheduled the following remaining meetings:

Date: Tuesday, Dec. 5
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Place: Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center
3181 Rainbow Drive, Drive

Date: Monday, Dec. 11
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00 p.m.
Manual Maloof Auditorium
1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur
