Baldwin County Democratic Committee meeting Nov. 12

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Baldwin County Democratic Committee will have its close of the year meeting 7 p.m. Tuesday at the County Recreation Center Walter B. Williams Park location.

All interested citizens are encouraged to attend, so that they may discover what their local democratic party has to offer.

One special guest for the meeting is Sheriff Bill Massee. The long serving law enforcement leader will detail the local and state challenges facing the department.

With 42 percent of Baldwin County government funds going to public safety and with the looming cloud of a possible government consolidation, Massee will speak about those issues and many more. 

This will give the citizens of Milledgeville and Baldwin County a great opportunity to speak to and hear from the highest elected constitutional official in Baldwin County. 

Past committee meetings guests include the likes of Baldwin County Commission Chairman Sammy Hall and state president of the AFL-CIO Union, Richard Ray.

County Democratic Committee Chairman Quentin T. Howell said welcoming speakers of any political affiliation helps attendees understand all the issues.

The group isn’t just about politics. The local Democratic Committee continues branching out into community problems and solutions.

In addition to the informative speaker portion, the Democratic Committee will honor the late Dennette Odum Jackson.

Jackson, who passed away in February, was a trailblazer who served as the Milledgeville's first African American city councilwoman.

She served District 1 for 12 years starting in 1992. Her countless selfless acts drew the highest acclaim and praise.

Jackson recorded another historic first as the first African American president of the sixth district of the Georgia American Legion Auxiliary.

As a member of the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials (GABEO), Jackson was also a chairman of the Oconee Community Service Board, president of the local AARP chapter and served on the Georgia War Veterans Home advisory council.
