It all starts with county government. I am embarrassed of DeKalb county. Until the county is purged (again!) there will not be the changes needed to improve DeKalb. Schools are terrible where I live and instead of getting better, they are simply closing. I would love to see the area improve, but until residence start taking responsibility for the way they treat where they live it will not change. There are a lot of low-income, close-minded individuals who treat the area poorly. I am not sure how to even start to change this. BUT, I love my neighborhood, I love my neighbors, and I love my house!
