Video of Dunwoody City Council Meeting of January 24

Recap, DeKalb County School Board Member Ms. Nancy Jester spoke briefly at the very start of the meeting stating that she has been listening to her constituents, she explained the future process as well as a few important upcoming dates.

After Ms. Jester the Dunwoody City Council approved everything put in front of them as presented except for the resolution on the DeKalb County School redistricting which was modified to remove the magnet component.  The meeting moved at a good clip and many first time visitors should be aware that by the time we vote on an item, it has been reviewed and discussed several times.

The full meeting video is above and I have taken the time to prepare two highlight clips, the first is Robert Wittenstein's announcement of his decision to modify the school resolution and the second clip is the reading - modification - discussion and approval of the school resolution.

Wow -- after watching both of those clips, I am so impressed with the civility and good intentions of everyone who spoke, nothwithstanding how divisive this issue is. I hope all the groups meeting to discuss these issues (including the Board of Educ.) can be equally respectful of one another's opinions.

This is the first time I had a chance to view Ms. Jester speak. She appears to be an articulate, professional, and charming young lady - with an earnest quality about her.

Not a typical politician - without the slightest indication of duplicity, portrays herself as an involved parent and a responsible member of the community.

From first blush it looks like we might just have ourselves an intelligent inspiring leader in the makings here.
