Joint meeting should not be isolated event

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

This should be a time to remember that common ground and what should be the common objective - the one that ideally spurred their interests to run for public office in the first place - to serve the people of Milledgeville and Baldwin County in an effort for progress and growth. 

Today's meeting will consist of a presentation from a representative from the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia and is open to the public. This is also an ideal opportunity to hear from those making the decisions on the issues in city and county government and formulate questions.

What this should not be is a ceremonial effort or a one-time event. It should instead be a new attempt to step out on good faith in hopes of working to realize progress in this community.

Everybody's idea of progress is different - it often depends on who is asked or even which portion of the county one poses the question to. 

Not every conversation on every issue is ideal nor are they always entirely positive, but they must at least happen to find the common ground and move forward.
