Black Caucus Seeks to Dissolve Atlanta Cities | News

Georgia’s Legislative Black Caucus has filed suit seeking to dissolve the municipalities of Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Milton, Chattahoochee Hills and Johns Creek. The caucus said state lawmakers broke the 1965 Voting Rights Act to create majority white voting areas.  Officials from the cities mentioned in the lawsuit said that is not true. Wendell Willard, an attorney representing Sandy Springs, said not only was the legislative process fair, he said the cities serve all of its residents well.
