Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report

February 10, 2018 - Virginia Brown of the United Way of Coastal Georgia and Dr. Don Mathews of the Reg Murphy Center for Economic and Policy Studies at College of Coastal Georgia will be featured speakers when the Glynn County Democratic Party holds its February ‘Issues Forum.

The event is open to the public.  

The Glynn Democrats Monthly Issues Forum will held Monday, Feb. 26, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at First United Methodist Church on Norwich St.,Brunswick.

Dr. Don Mathews is also professor of economics in the School of Business and Public Management at College of Coastal Georgia.

Both Brown and Mathews  will present up-to-the-minute information and data about poverty in Glynn County.

“Recent articles in our local papers have highlighted the studies showing that more than 25 percent of 16- to 24-year-olds in our county are neither working nor going to school. Virginia and Don have been at the forefront of efforts to better understand the implications of these studies so we can adopt public policies to reverse this trend and help us avoid the social, economic and public safety crises that flow from them,” according to the party’s leaders.

“The Great Recession hit our area harder than most, and we are still rebounding after others have recovered. How is that affecting us, and what can we do about it?” they state.

Members are encouraged to bring a friend or a neighbor. 

During the Q&A session after the program, the local Democratic Party promises “lively and civil discussion to understand better how this issue affect our lives right here in Glynn County.”

Attendees can submit a question in advance on the party’s website at:
