2022 memberships are due now. Membership runs from January 1 of the current year to December 31 of the current year. We may not have a Presidential election coming this year but we do have many other positions that need to be voted on. Renew and help us push for RED candidates. Membership forms can be downloaded from the "Get Involved" page. Please be sure to fill the application out completely so we may keep our records up to date. And be sure to print legibly so there are no mistakes on name spelling and emails. Membership is $20 per person, $10 per student and $100 per business. If your membership is not paid then you may not vote on any issues brought to the floor during a regular meeting even if you have attended the required number of meetings.
 
Our Next meeting is May 10th at the Library. Doors will open at 7:00pm for a casual meet and greet with our local BOC candidates and BOE candidates. The monthly meeting will begin at 7:30pm and will be short to allow all the candidates to speak to you in a casually. 
 
We are still planning on supporting the BBQ at the Legion on May 14th. An invitation has been sent to the Democratic party of Oglethorpe to have their candidates join (the Legion is bi-partisan) and we are sending out invitations to the Republican candidates. We will post soon on who will be attending. 
 
**NOTHING NEW TO REPORT**  During the BOC meeting on April 4, the subject of the title change was once again addressed. A motion was made by Will Brown to have this meeting serve as the "first reading" of this change and do a "second reading" at the May meeting. After making that motion, Will Brown did say that he will be voting in favor of the title change. We are told that there will be no salary increase and that the title change is to revert back to what the ttle was several years ago. The issue is that the Municiple Code must be re-written to match what the title change will be and the duties. At present there is a conflict of wording. 
 
If you want change then let your Commissioners know exactly what you want to see in the County. They don't know if you don't let them know and attend the meetings. We understand that the meetings are held at a difficult time during the day but that doesn't stop you from conatacting them by phone, email or text. And if they don't answer right away, contact them again. This is why there are new people running for the opening positions on the Board. Time to make a change????

There is a lot for us to do in vetting the candidates for the 2022 elections, not only for the 10th District but local election as well. We need to keep on top of what's going on and gather in numbers to present the wishes of the people. We've done this locally and we need to continue that movement, making changes locally will set in motion the changes we need to have nationaly. 

 
We also need volunteers as poll watchers for the election cycle, it's an easy-peesy job. This will be for the primaries and general election. Please contact Dave Gossage at davegossage1@gmail.com.
