Contact your legislator
No state legislator has yet agreed to sponsor either Greenhaven or Vista Grove, but the lobbyists are putting pressure on them Legislators need to hear from citizens that they are opposed.
Please contact your legislator and tell them you do NOT wish to be put into one of these cities.
When contacting your own state representative and senator, ALWAYS include your address so they know if you are a constituent and how you are affected by these proposals. If you do not know, you can look up your legislators on the Secretary of State’s page. While it is ok to contact the whole delegation, it is most effective when you contact your OWN representative.
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.
