COVINGTON -- Local and state elected officials are inviting the public to attend a town hall meeting this Saturday.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at Porter Memorial Library at 6191 Hwy. 212 in Newton County.
District 2 Commissioner Lanier Sims and State Rep. Pam Dickerson, D-Conyers, are confirmed to attend. Other elected officials who may attend are Board of Education Chairman Eddie Johnson, State Sen. Ronald Ramsey, D-Lithonia, and Newton Sheriff Ezell Brown.
"Just come out and let us know your input and let us know your thoughts. We want to keep the community informed," Sims said.
While the town hall is open to all county residents, it will be geared more toward districts 2 and 3, he said.
Politicians will answer questions from the audience and provide updates on local and state issues as well as have redistricting maps available for viewing.
"With the recent occurrence of Crossover Day last Wednesday, I urge Georgia residents to come out to this town hall meeting," said Dickerson. "I work hard to represent the people of House District 95; it is important that I hear from you to discuss and hear feedback on key legislation and end of session information."
