The Covington News - - Obits - STAFF RE­PORTS news@covnews.com

U.S. Con­gress­man Hank John­son (D-GA) will at­tend Satur­day’s town hall from 10 a.m. to noon at the Porter Me­mo­rial Branch Li­brary, 6191 Ga. High­way 212, Cov­ing­ton.

State Sen. Ron­ald Ram­sey (D-litho­nia), Rep. Pam Dick­er­son (DCony­ers) and Dis­trict 2 Com­mis­sioner Lanier Sims had pre­vi­ously con­firmed they would be in at­ten­dance.

Sims said each elected of­fi­cial will give a quick up­date on lo­cal and state is­sues, but the ma­jor­ity of the town hall will be com­prised of an in­for­mal ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.

Dick­er­son, John­son and Ram­sey have all added por­tions of western New­ton County dur­ing the lat­est re­dis­trict­ing fol­low­ing the 2010 Cen­sus. Sims’ dis­trict ac­tu­ally shrunk dur­ing lo­cal re­dis­trict­ing, be­cause his dis­trict was over­pop­u­lated.

Rep. Steve Davis (RMc­donough), who also rep­re­sents a por­tion of south­west New­ton County, may be in at­ten­dance.
