Nope – I’m not even being sarcastic. I’ll give credit where it’s due. Senator Carter’s press release was a nice touch. p.s. The next gubernational race: #inittowinit
Today, Governor Deal announced his selections for the reconstituted DeKalb School Board. The number of people and the overall quality in the applicant pool speaks volumes about the people of DeKalb and how much we care about our community.
On paper, the six new appointed members are an undeniably impressive group. Read about the new members here. Whatever you think about the process that put these members in place, we all need to come together to support them to ensure that the school system maintains accreditation for our students.
I personally plan to attend the swearing-in ceremony today if it doesn’t conflict with my Senate committee schedule. Going forward, I will do everything I can to support this board and its work.
I know that there are differing views on the law that allowed the governor to remove the elected board members and replace them, but we can all agree that we have to move forward and do what is best for the children of DeKalb County. That’s what I intend to do.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Senator Jason Carter
