Black Caucus to be held in Albany

July 16, 2007

Albany - Hundreds of business leaders, elected officials, and public safety experts will meet in Albany next month to find ways to improve life for south Georgians. Up to 500 people are expected to take part in a regional black caucus to discuss topics from healthcare to crime.

County Commissioner Muarlene Edwards says the people who attend will help steer community leaders in Albany in a new direction.  She said, "We have persons who have done great things in their cities and they can come in on what's happening here and they certainly can give us advice in terms of where we need to go, where we're going. Those things we're doing good and those things we're not doing so good and those things that we can do better."

The Black Caucus will be held August 10th-12th at the Hilton and Albany State University.
