DeKalb School Board Reapportionment Update
(from Nancy Jester)

(Thursday) the DeKalb Delegation will meet to discuss the redistricting of the DeKalb Board of Education.

As you may have read, the sub-committee of the delegation approved a 5 member board district that would eliminate the 4 members up for election this year. I do not support this approach. You can read about it on the new website for DeKalb School Watch - DeKalb School Watch Two. Click here to view their latest post on this subject. Thank you DeKalb School Watch for your continued dedication to the children and taxpayers of DeKalb!

A new map has been proposed that unites and keeps intact, communities of interest. It's the best map I've seen to date. I, along with Don McChesney and Pam Speaks endorse this map as the one we believe the delegation should approve. I've posted a new blog entry on my website (click here to view it) with this map and it's statistics. This is the only map that I have seen that keeps the district population deviations within the acceptable limits (<1%).

If you agree with Don, Pam and me, please email the DeKalb Delegation (their emails are listed below) and tell them to support this map.

If you have time and want to be present at the DeKalb Delegation meeting, please join the meeting tomorrow, Thursday, February 9th at Noon; 605 Coverdell Building (across from the Capitol). Please note that the meeting may be delayed depending on the time that the Session ends.

Parking for the meeting: You can park for $5 in the deck on Jesse Hill.
As always, I am available if you have any questions or concerns.
