Please read the message by Rev. Rose and then mark your calendar for Oct. 22, 2011. On that day we will have the largest March/Rally in the history of Valdosta. This will be the March that will show everyone in Georgia and America that we the Citizens of Lowndes-Valdosta, know how to come together and we will no longer stand for the Lies, Greed, and Disrespect from Cuee. We will for once and for all tell Cuee and the Chamber that “Our Children are not for Sale” This March will show Cuee and the Chamber that when we all stand together; Democrats, Republicans, NAACP, SCLC, White, Black, Hispanic, Rich, Poor, Young and Old we show what true democracy is all about. Cuee has tried everything to break our spirit with negative campaign ads and misleading information, but they did not. They cannot break the solidarity that has grown throughout this community over the past two months.
To watch Republicans and Democrats set aside their
parties differences and come together for the sake of our children and the community has been inspiring to say the least. To see former Teachers, Administrators, and Students from both Lowndes and Valdosta walking and volunteering in the rain and heat has been a awesome thing to see.
We still have a long ways to go and this March can be the catalyst that energizes every registered voter in Valdosta. Please plan to come out this Sat. Oct, 22, at 9:00 am. We need every Teacher, Administrator, Bus Driver, Non Certified Employee of Valdosta and Lowndes School systems at this March. We need every Church and all of their congregations at this March. We need every Sorority and Fraternity, we need the American Legion Posts, we need the Am-Vets Post, we need homemade vote “NO” for School Unification signs and banners.
We need Mothers and Fathers, Grand Moms and Grand Dads. But who we need most at this March is our Children! We need them there so that they can witness history. They need to know that we as a community care about their future and that we fight to the end for them. They must see the real power of a community when it comes together. They must see and witness this March because one day they will be called upon.
Please forward this email to everyone you know, today, and then tell them to email everyone they know.
Remember to vote “NO” and to vote early!!!

Hundreds of people are expected to assemble in front of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce at 9:00 A.M. Saturday, October 22nd., and march to the Martin Luther King memorial on the corner of Martin Luther King and Ashley Streets.
Please join us. You will hear from former Valdosta City Schools superintendent, Sam Allen, and other leaders on why we must vote no on School Unification. This vote is so crucial to our future and the future of our children. We are also prepared to set the record straight as to why Dr. King’s name is being used to promote something that he was for, as a means to get something that he was against. Everybody who understood Dr. King and his message, knows that what is being done in his name is insulting, at best.
Please join us, and tell your relatives and friends about it. It is expected to be the largest march in Valdosta’s history. You won’t want to miss it.
