Some residents have wondered aloud why Clayton’s elected officials don’t appear to work together on issues that affect the county as a whole. This mindset could be changing, thanks to the newly formed Leadership Roundtable.
Co-hosted by Lake City Mayor Willie Oswalt and Senator Gail Buckner, these monthly meetings aim to bring our leaders from all over the county together every month to communicate with each other and the public.
