Good Things Can Happen in DeKalb
Thanksgiving and Celebration: Paul Jennings
Former State Representative Paul Jennings passed away this past week from leukemia. Representative Jennings served part of north DeKalb County in the State House from 1998 -2002 and from 2004 – 2006.  Representative Jennings served in the United States Navy and earned an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He was also a good friend, supporter, and mentor of mine. Join me in thanksgiving for his leadership for DeKalb County and celebration of his life. He was a blessing to all who had the privilege to know him.
Meet  Sherman the Newest Jester 
Sherman is 3 months old. He is amazing! I’ve been working with him on fetching and sitting. He is doing well learning these commands. I will point out that he likes sticks and bringing them into the house and his bed. We have quite a collection.

Around DeKalb
Great night with the Georgia State University College Republicans. We had a great talk about fiscal conservatism, the politics of DeKalb, and radical professors at GSU that lead meetings, during the business day, where their followers threaten elected officials and their children. I support everyone’s right to free speech. I support the right to free speech even if I disagree and find it vulgar. I do not support taxpayers subsidizing such speech.
Commissioner Nancy Jester spoke with Generation Joshua students at the state Capitol – an impressive group of young leaders.
