Dear DeKalb Delegation, I support the proposed seven seat map for the DeKalb County School Board.

This evening I read numerous news stories documenting the various DeKalb County School Board Reapportionment maps that you may have in front of you on Thursday morning and I wanted to let you know that as a parent of DeKalb County School children, I support the map shown above that is endorsed by my school board member, Ms. Nancy Jester.  I specifically support any map containing 7 districts vs any suggestion that only 5 districts are needed.  Below are a few links for your reading pleasure.

Thank you for your consideration.

Done. Emails to Governor Deal and the Delegation. I also asked for legislators that financially benefit from DeKalb BOE policy decisions to recuse themselves from this vote. That Senator knows who he is - a DCSS employee.
