Black Caucus comes to Albany

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Members of the state legislative black Caucus will be in Albany this weekend. About 50 state leaders will meet at ASU to discuss everything from health and wellness to urban policies and how they impact rural communities.

Congressman Sanford Bishop will also address the group explaining the Stimulus package and what it means for Southwest Georgia.  Darrell Sabbs said, "Unless we go to Atlanta, those of us who live in South Georgia, we don't quite know what some of the issues are if we're not up on the issues or talking directly to our legislators and so they thought it was important that they get out of Atlanta to come South and do sort of a listening tour and the first place they wanted to come was Albany, Georgia."

The Black Caucus is free of charge and open to the public. It will be held from 7:30 AM until 3:30 Saturday Afternoon at Albany State University.
