Is this a great nation, or what? Who cares if they aren’t eagles? The Lakeside City Alliance sees the opportunity to raise funds off DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis’s indictment, and what’s more American than that? Maybe when former School Superintendent Crawford Lewis goes on trial, they can raise money for vouchers! Just sayin’. Anyway, my thoughts on the issue are unchanged. Here’s the letter, along with some helpful reminders I added.

Friends and Neighbors,The announcement earlier today of the multiple indictments of DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis is disturbing and we can only hope that these allegations are not true. Irrespective of the outcome, it is clear that valuable county resources will be diverted in dealing with these issues. All DeKalb County residents will feel the impact of this event.This is but the latest incident that further supports the notion that more localized control and improved accountability of our governmental leaders should be explored.Support LCA’s feasibility study effort to determine if potential cityhood and more local control is a possibility for our community.Please click on the “Donate” button below to support the study for cityhood!On behalf of the LCA board,Mary Kay Woodworth Lakeside City Alliance
