As state lawmakers prepare to convene for the 2018 Georgia General Assembly session on Jan. 8, the DeKalb Delegation is hosting a series of community meetings.
State Rep. Howard Mosby, who chairs the DeKalb House Delegation, said the meetings will provide an opportunity for legislators to share updates, answer questions and receive input from the community on issues and concerns.
It’s really a listening session to hear from constituents,” said State Rep. Howard Mosby, who chairs the DeKalb Delegation. “We expect that we’ll be dealing with Emory’s annexation into Atlanta, cityhood of Greenhaven, transportation and MARTA. Also, the ethics bill is under appeal. Casino gambling will likely come up this Session.
