Lisa Clarke Hill named to legislative panel

ATLANTA — Moultrie Council member Lisa Clarke Hill has been appointed to serve on the Georgia Municipal Association’s (GMA) Legislative Policy Council. The council is responsible for proposing the association’s Legislative Platform and engaging other city officials in the legislative process throughout the year in helping move the platform forward.

“Council member Hill has extensive knowledge of both municipal issues and the legislative process, making her an outstanding candidate for the Legislative Policy Council,” said GMA Executive Director Lamar Norton. “The leadership she provides will be an asset to cities in her area of the state throughout the legislative process.”

The Legislative Policy Council, a grassroots lobbying effort, is the focal point for GMA’s legislative policy effort, combining the efforts and input of GMA’s six standing policy committees with its district outreach program. In addition, the council provides guidance and input to GMA’s legislative staff during the legislative session.

Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, educational, employee benefit and consulting services to its 515 member cities.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
