October 10th, 2017 – HPCIA Community Meeting Recap

Summary

This meeting was our “Election” focused meeting. We met with three Candidates across two races in city wide elections. Byron Amos who is running for District 2 Atlanta Board of Education came out to introduce himself, his platform and answer school system questions as they relate to Home Park. Byron was very open with the community and offered his direct contact number should you wish to field any questions to him.

Additionally, District 3 (Home Park’s district) City Council Member candidates, Greg Clay and Ivory Young (incumbent)    each came out to introduce themselves, discuss their agendas if elected and field questions from Home Park community members. Many of the questions related to zoning laws, code enforcement and development plans on the Westside.

Some other Candidates that expressed interest in engaging the community but were unable to attend include the following below. Moreover, you can find a detailed Committee for a Better Atlanta Score Card rating on all Candidates here: CBA-Scores-8.5×11.
