McDonough leaders consider options for race-related training

The McDonough City Council voted at its June 15 regular meeting to to move forward with “race equity and leadership” training for its own members and others in the community, with details to come next month. The vote was unanimous, coming after discussion about bias when addressing various city issues. Council member Sandra Vincent alleged that she and fellow council member Kamali Varner, both black women, have been left out of important communications and treated as lesser members of the council.

The motion included direction for staff to present three options at the council’s July 20 meeting.
