Ethics - Dunwoody City Council - Financial Disclosures and Campaign Contributions are now available on line.  The data is not 100% complete as I know that I have already filed my 2009 & 2010 financial disclosure reports but I am sure they will all be there soon.  Our initial candidate campaign and personal finance forms were filed with the GA State Ethics Commission and can be found by searching the the previous links.

Cheap Dad Alert - Atlanta Opera’s Family Day on Saturday March 27th The Atlanta Opera is hosting their popular Opera Family Day on Saturday, March 27 from 10 am – 2 pm. The day is designed for children in preschool and early elementary school. Activities include make-your-own instruments and other craft activities, an interactive costume shop, stage combat demonstrations and an instrument petting zoo. For those who don’t know, an instrument petting zoo is an opportunity for children to hold and play various instruments. It’s a lot of fun and the kids love it. Of course there is also an opera performance. This year will be The Ugly Duckling.  $5.00 with free parking.

Speeding Tickets reduced - DeKalb offers a firesale reduction on old traffic citations.  I wonder if the recorders court has been doing this for years without putting a notice in the paper.

Five Year Tax Assessment Freeze, citizen vote approved - thank you Rep Fran Millar.

Tour Atlanta's Top Kitchens (Dunwoody included) this weekend to support the Junior League of Atlanta.
