Sunday morning session with your State Lawmakers.

From the Dunwoody Neighbor

The community is invited to a 2012 legislative forum town hall meeting Jan. 8 at Dunwoody United Methodist Church, 1548 Mount Vernon Road in Dunwoody.

Dwight Hawksworth, one of the organizers, said several legislative officials will be discussing issues they anticipate will be important in the upcoming session. They will also be answering questions from the audience.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity for the legislators to be seen and to be heard,” he said.

Some lawmakers who will be in attendance are District 56 State Sen. John Albers, R-Roswell; District 80 State Rep. Mike Jacobs, R-Atlanta; District 40 State Sen. Fran Millar, R-Dunwoody; District 81 State Rep. Elena Parent, D-Atlanta; District 79 State Rep. Tom Taylor, R-Dunwoody; and District 49 State Rep. Wendell Willard, R-Sandy Springs.

“It’s so important that we understand if we are going to be successful as a country we have to get the right people [in government] and show interest in the process,” Hawksworth said.

There will be two meetings Jan. 8. The first will be 9 to 10 a.m. and the second will be 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Hawksworth said the meetings should have a lot of information of interest to the community.

“One of the things we’ve found is that time flies in these forums,” he said. “It’s amazing how quickly these sessions go.”

Free parking will be available at the Dunwoody Library at 5339 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road with shuttle transportation to the church.
