Super District 4 and Concerned Citizens,
I want to thank those who came to my Town Hall Meeting on December

event a success and I look forward to another one in the near
future. I have listed the “Topics and Highlights”
addressed at the Town Hall Meeting below for your review. As well, I
have released my State of the District Address for the public. It is
my sincere hope that you will remain actively involved in our local

Leigh Touchton has forwarded me copies of the correspondence between
you on behalf of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority (VLCIA)
with her and the VDT.
I must say I don’t agree with your assertion that:
“The vast majority of her concerns for our project would have

Jack Kingston (R GA-01) came back to Valdosta, GA to hold another Health Care Town Hall after his previous one in August had ten times as many people as he expected. This time the 1200 seat Mathis Auditorium was maybe half full, so probably somewhere between 500 and 600 people attended.
The picture on the right is the core of Kingston’s argument. See for yourself.
Here’s a YouTube playlist for all the LAKE videos by Gretchen Quarterman from that September Town Hall. This is Kingston’s complete presentation except for a few words lost between videos and a few cases of camera failure. We’re still adding more videos from the question session. All the videos from the questions session are now available (17 Oct 2009); starting with Microphones are open.
