With less than a week before the deadline, Governor Brian Kemp is urging Georgians to do the right thing and fill out the 2020 Census. The governor addressed residents Thursday. 

“It is not too late to do that. Georgian’s response to the 2020 Census will directly affect representation and funding for our state throughout the next decade.”

Billions of dollars are at stake and Georgia’s share is dependent on Census figures.

Athens-Clarke County Mayor Kelly Girtz is appealing to Governor Brian Kemp for help in reducing the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Athens. As part of that effort, the mayor sent a letter to the governor with two recommendations on how to stem the tide. 


“One, clarity around what can be done in bars. Right now, the order is strangely worded in a way that provides lots of loopholes for bars, but what we really need is a bar environment that looks much more like a seated restaurant environment.” 

The panel discusses the week in news and politics, including a deep dive into ACCPD’s handling of protesters, and a new poll that shows growing unpopularity in Georgia for President Donald Trump and Governor Brian Kemp.
