General Assembly could consider district lines
Placeholder Image
State lawmakers could review Dawson County’s district lines when the Georgia General Assembly reconvenes in August for a special session on state redistricting. Rep. Amos Amerson ran two public notices in the Aug. 3 issue of the Dawson Community News announcing his intent to introduce local legislation to amend the lines for county commission and school board. The commission voted in June to submit a new district map after recent U.S. Census numbers showed the local population grew by nearly 40 percent from 2000-10.
