Subject: Fw: The Repeal of Ga. Law on School Consolidation
To: [many people]
Even though we the Citizens of Valdosta have spoken and defeated that hostile takeover, this is not the time to let up. We all must stay a vigilant as possible and never let anything like this happen again.
One way in which everyone in Valdosta and Lowndes can make a impact is to write a letter to Amy Carter, Admin. Floor Leader to the Governor, and ask for her to introduce a bill to repeal the old 1928 law that Cuee was able to use.
Remind Amy that she has an obligation to bring this bill to the floor. Remind her that the people
Democrats, Republicans, Tea Party Members, Blacks, Whites, Rich and the Poor, from Lowndes and Valdosta came out and voiced their displeasure and concern with the way that the old law was used to divide a community. Tell the whole community wants a say so in the matters of School Consolidation, not just the City.Repealing that 1928 law will leave the provisions in the later Georgia Constitution as the way to consolidate school districts, and the GA Constitution requires citizens in all affected school districts to have a chance to vote. That would prevent any further attempts at taxation without representation.
Remind her that she is up for re-election next year and we won’t forget her if she fails to listen to the will of the people.
Thanks, and I hope to see you all at the MLK Monument at 5:30 today.
