Warner Robins Politics

Sep 20

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.
