Update on Nomination

Good Morning Neighbor:

I know that many of you are having problems registering your nomination through the ATSDR website -  so instead please email Robert Zimmerman with your nomination along with a brief reason why you think I should serve on the work group panel.  You can just paste this information to the email and then add your comments.

Constance Thomas
South Fulton and Fayette Community Task Force
P.O. Box 1593


Fairburn,  GA 30213

Also, the replay of the webcast is now available.  The session that I told you about where we were able to demand that our voices be heard is below in the Plenary Session - click that link - give your name and email and you will be able to view it.  What these community leaders have to say is so vital and clearly another reason why we must be a part of this work group panel.

Have a wonderful day.

Your neighbor,
