Poverty Initiative in Final Planning Stages

The new community group that has dedicated itself to cutting down Athens’ 28% poverty rate is meeting today to get organized.  Members of Partners for Prosperous Athens, including Mayor Heidi Davison, Chamber of Commerce President Larry McKinney, and Clarke County Superintendent of Schools Lewis Holloway will convene today to prepare for a February 11th meeting with all 33 members of the PPA steering committee.

After the February 11th meeting, we understand that PPA will be ready to being including other members of the community – meaning the average Joes like us – in the process, and thanks to our friends inside PPA, we look forward to giving you all the information and encouragement you need to get involved.
