Political Rewind: Buckhead Cityhood Leader Leaves Buckhead; Stacey Abrams Heads to Howard University

On Thursday, a leader of the “Buckhead City” movement, Bill White, announced his departure from Buckhead, blaming Governor Brian Kemp for killing the cityhood effort. Meanwhile, Stacey Abrams accepted a chair position at Howard University while remaining a resident of Georgia.

The Details

In an episode of Political Rewind, the panel discussed the recent updates on Buckhead City’s ongoing effort for cityhood. Bill White expressed his frustration over Governor Brian Kemp’s lack of support for the cityhood effort and announced his departure from Buckhead. He claimed that Kemp’s decision to not immediately sign the bill for the proposed city caused the movement to lose its momentum. However, Kemp has responded to these allegations stating that he will sign the bill when it makes it to his desk.

On the other hand, Stacey Abrams has accepted a chair position at Howard University. She will be teaching a course on Southern politics and voting rights as well as working on the school’s administration. However, Abrams clarified that despite her new position, she will still remain a resident and voter in Georgia where she will continue her work with Fair Fight Action and other voting rights advocacy groups.

Final Thoughts

These recent updates have shed light on the challenges that the Buckhead Cityhood movement is facing in its ongoing efforts. Meanwhile, Stacey Abrams continues to make strides in her career and fight for voting rights, both in Georgia and nationally. Time will tell what the future holds for both these issues as they continue to evolve.
