Support 1 year, 9 months ago on Career academy voted down 4-3

They are not. Read the statistics. When parents are paying for an education staff are more lightly to give students better grades to keep enrollment up.

Support 1 year, 9 months ago on Career academy voted down 4-3

I think a college and career academy is a good idea. But before the Chamber spearhead this they should have tried to build a relationship with the school system. The chamber has a ZERO relationship with the school system. They didn't publicly support the ESPLOST which benefits DCSS schools and the Albany Area businesses. This brings in $100M to the ALBANY AREA. HOWEVER, the CHamber is publicly campaigning for the TSPLOST. How ironic. I think before moving forward the committee should have made sure the public understood every aspect of this charter and not try to rush it to a vote. It was not on the agenda yet certain groups came to the meeting knowing it would be place on there. The Chamber is not about building bridges. I think the adult public outcry was more a vote against the Chamber and not a college and career academy.

Support 1 year, 10 months ago on Taylor designs five-year plan for Albany

The CIty should have been preparing for this day years ago. The last couples of years they have been living like this day was not going to come. City employees got raises and no furlough days. The time have now come for them to live within their means and raising property taxes should not be an option.

Can the Albany Herald put the draft online for the public to read? This will affect the community. We need to know what is being purposed.

Support 1 year, 10 months ago on Local officials host T-SPLOST forums

I'm voting NO!!! Did the Albany Chamber or any of these elected official speak up in support of the Dougherty County Education SPLOST which generates $100 million over the next 5 years for the local (Albany Area) economy? NO. There must be something in it for them.
