We attended the forum for the Mayor and city council candidates Friday night. There are four candidates for Mayor including the incumbent who has been mayor since 1994! Time for a change. Some questions about diversity. Turns out there are only 4 African American police officers out of a 150 member force. WR has a 35% minority population and we call ourselves the International City. There are several candidates for city council positions. I have to learn more about them before I decide who to support. The next morning I was attending the Middle Georgia Democratic Women’s Club. I ended up on the slate for President starting in January. I found out Georgia is 49 out of 50 states for per capita spending. Education keeps getting their funding cut to the tune of $44.5 million. It is a disgrace.
