(Editor's note: the following is a letter to the editor from State Rep. Dar'shun Kendrick.)
I have heard from many of you your concern about my vigorous support of a series of town hall meetings that were planned in DeKalb County but no indication of when I would host a town hall meeting in Gwinnett. Please allow me to succinctly address those concerns.
I will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting in Gwinnett, possibly along with other legislators, in February, after I obtain a good grasp of the issues under the Gold Dome. However, let me explain briefly the reason for my constant promotion of the town hall meetings in DeKalb.
First, the town hall meetings in DeKalb and not being hosted by me personally but by the DeKalb House Delegation. I am the Secretary of the DeKalb House Delegation. Therefore, it is my job to make sure the information gets out to the public about the meetings.
In turn, my constant communications about the DeKalb House Delegation Town Hall meetings is tied to my duties as Secretary of the Delegation and may seem extremely heightened by that fact. Additionally, the DeKalb County Charter requires that DeKalb host town hall meetings before session, so we were required by law to have these meetings before Session began.
I don't have the authority to call a Gwinnett County House Delegation Town Hall meeting as I am not the Chairman, however, as I stated before, I will hold one in February sometime. Please feel free to sign up for my enewsletter to be the first to know the details at www.kendrickforgeorgia.com.
I am very excited to represent Gwinnett county. Please understand that you are not far from my thoughts. I look forward to seeing many of you in February. Thank you for allowing me to serve.
Rep. Dar'shun N. Kendrick
State Representative (House District 93, which includes parts of Lithonia)
Secretary (Appointed), DeKalb House Delegation
