    Enjoyed the column! I’ve been a resident of DEKALB for a long time, and I have a strong interest in be apart of DEKALB NACCP. To be honest, I am just learning about this organization, but I am ready to serve. In closing, I have served on our newly elected Commissioner for Suprer District 7, Lorraine Cochran Johnson.
