Thank you for visiting my website which I hope will be a good source for information about District 6.  Please visit it often as the News and Calendar change frequently.


I am always looking for ways to stay in touch.  Your neighborhood and community meetings are important to me as they give me a chance to hear directly from you about concerns and ideas.  If you do not belong to an association, I can arrange to meet with your friends and neighbors for conversation in your home.  Please get in touch with me about upcoming activities so that I can attend. You can reach me at 404-371-4909, through my website, or email at

Deepdene Park Walk

Along with Eco-Addendum, we had a great walk through Deepdene Park, one of the Olmsted Linear Parks off of Ponce de Leon Avenue. This park contains an old growth forest with many native species and is an essential part of Atlanta's natural history.
