It’s the Lanier County Advocate, videoing the Lakeland City Council, the Lanier County Commission, and the Lanier County Board of Education, plus the Lanier County Historical Society on their YouTube channel.

And they put PDF of their paper paper online as well.

Nope, not the mighty VDT (too busy having a junior high school catfight with the City of Valdosta) and not the City of Valdosta (too scared people might see citizens talking to them) nor in Lowndes County (even though it bought all the necessary video equipment when it built the county palace, and demonstrated last December that it knows how to use it), hey, in Lowndes County the public’s business, like those Commissioner and Council packets, is only for old boys, not for the people who elected them and pay their taxes!

For comparison, the population of Lanier County is about 10,000, while the population of Lowndes County is about 111,000. Which to you looks more like a transparent forward-thinking community?

Congratulations Lanier County Advocate!
