Greenhaven clip from presentation November 9, 2018 at the St. Timothy United Methodist Church. Dial Heights, a neighborhood in Stone Mountain bordering Decatur, allowed them to present and the audience was allowed a Q&A. This is an exchange where Greenhaven was asked for specifics on how they would bring economic development. After 5 years they still do not have any specific plan in place to bring development to South DeKalb even though this is their largest argument for Greenhaven.
UPDATE: November 30, 2021
Greenhaven has changed its’ name, but not it’s tactics. Kathryn Rice announced Greenhaven is now going by the name of City of DeKalb. Same script, same cast, just a new name, a larger footprint and promoting it as DeKalb Cityhood. The irony of this is that their lobbyist, Brad Carver, of Hall Smith Booth is a Republican supporter of Trump tactics! Brad Carver is on record of saying the election of President Biden, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossof, all of whom won the vote in Georgia in 2020, was election fraud. We know it’s not true, but what does that say about Kathryn Rice and they City of DeKalb crew? The ends do not justify the means. City of DeKalb proponents and Kathryn Rice are saying it’s voter suppression, when they are actually using Brad Carver, is one of the members supporting Georgia’s legislation and installing tactics that would actually suppress the votes of not only minorities, but independent voters. DeKalb Cityhood are messaging that they want an all black city, but are using politicians that are actively suppressing votes and gerrymandering districts to suppress the voters of metro Atlanta.
