A state lawmaker whose House district includes Atlanta has raised a sharp protest against plans to annex Emory University and other properties into the city – but not into the Atlanta public school system.
State Rep. Beth Beskin, a Republican, charged that to do so would create “hybrid” Atlantans and subject the city to “dissension and division.”
The lawmaker made her points in an Aug. 4 letter to Mayor Kasim Reed and members of the Atlanta City Council.
