State Sen. Fran Millar

State Sen. Fran Millar (l) was presented with the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

Everyone should be concerned about where Georgia public education ranks in our country. The National Assessment of Educational Congress (NAEP) currently is the common metric for all states.

Obviously, there is room for improvement. However, when people try to say we are 48th or 49th feel free to share the facts with them.

I urge you to attend one of three town hall meetings hosted by DeKalb’s state representatives:

Oct. 13: Brookhaven City Hall

Oct. 21: Maloof Center in Decatur

Oct. 28: Porter Sanford Center in Decatur

All meetings will run from 7 – 9 p.m. Being informed is a good thing.

Finally the DeKalb GOP Victory Dinner is being held at Dunwoody Country Club on October 8th. Special guests include Herman Cain, Governor Nathan Deal and Congressman Tom Price. Contact Margot Teed at margotteed@

As always your comments and thoughts are appreciated.

Senator Fran Millar
