Listening tour canceled

By Greg Gelpi

State Rep. Gail Buckner, D-Jonesboro, canceled the Georgia General Assembly's House Democrats listening tour that was scheduled for Tuesday.

With holidays and breaks by schools and the General Assembly, Buckner said that she didn't sense many would show up for the meeting meant to provide citizen input on the state's budget.

Clayton County Public Schools Superintendent Barbara Pulliam and Clayton College & State University President Thomas Harden were scheduled to speak.

Buckner said that the meeting will be rescheduled, although no date has been set.
