Who wants to join the team? I am very happy that we were able to establish a new voting area for Chamblee, even with the pandemic raging! Our new 4th District will provide representation from neighborhoods south of Buford Highway. Each area of our city has its own unique concerns and needs - I think it is imperative to have our leadership reflect neighborhoods from all over the city. Our City Council members strive to serve everyone, no matter the district. Still, the more wide-ranging our representation, the better solutions we can forge.

There’s just waaaaaaay too much happening in Chamblee for me to condense all the news into one email. Want to catch up on more? Moonbird Coffee at 5393 Peachtree Road (in the Southbound restaurant) has great drinks and breakfast burritos! I’ll be there on Saturday, August 14, from 8:00 am to 11:30 am, sitting outside, ready to chat.
8:00 am - 11:30 am
On the evening Tuesday, August 3, neighborhoods around Chamblee will celebrate National Night Out. This event brings our Police Officers out into the streets to meet YOU where you live. I strongly believe that building personal bonds gives communities resilience through troubled times, and events like this can nurture that process. The last time this was held, in 2019, it was GREAT fun to see the different spreads out in neighborhoods all over the city as citizens turned out to welcome our officers and spend an evening socializing. If you or your neighborhood want to “host” a National Night Out event on your block, you can register at the link below:
People are getting out and about again, and that includes me! Above, you can see a sampling of the events I've been able to attend: our City Council retreat in Athens, GA; a walk along the Peachtree Creek Greenway with Rep. Lucy McBath and Brookhaven's Mayor Ernst; a police use-of-force training with Chamblee's Lieutenant Gerald Thomson; an awards night with Los Vecinos de Buford Highway (where the city received an award for our partnership with the organization). I feel an immense pride being able to represent Chamblee, and I thank you again for that honor. I am always here if you need me: email@example.com.
Stay safe out there!
