Republican State of Georgia House Representative Ed Rynders, an elected official from the South Georgia city of Albany has run unopposed for his House Seat. He is Chair of the Governmental Affairs Committee. This committee determines if Greenhaven moves ahead. The policy’s he has endorsed in the past have not been good for DeKalb County or Metro Atlanta in general. According to Ballotpedia.org he had over $106,000 in donations in the last election.
Kathryn Rice is the chair for many Greenhaven organizations. On February 24, 2015, DeKalb County Board of Commissioners deemed she wasn’t qualified to be a DeKalb Commissioner and denied her request to be placed on the Board without a vote in District 5. The three Commissioners that represented South DeKalb voted against her attempt to be placed on the Board. In the election for DeKalb County Commissioner held later that year on June 16, 2015 for District 5, Ms. Rice came in 4th and didn’t make the run off with a 427 vote total. During this time she was still promoting Greenhaven.
Neighbors Against Greenhaven will start promoting our opposition to Greenhaven through public meetings, articles and signs and directing those who would like to join to our Facebook Page and our Website. In addition, we are opposing Greenhaven’s inappropriate use of the definition of voter suppression. We are determined to prevent this vote because neighbors in Stone Mountain, Decatur, Gresham, Ellenwood, Clarkston and Scottdale weren’t not consulted in the beginning nor at any time during.
