17th Georgia State Representative
Brothers, I greet you in the name of the Supreme Basileus of the universe. It is with a great sense of humility and sincere honor that I accept the responsibility as your State Representative for FY 17-18.
The focus this year is three-fold. First, we must actively engage our voter registration program to educate and mobilize voters. Voter registration is the first step to facilitating systematic change. Additionally, we must partner with others (churches, and social/civic organizations) to get our voters to the polls. We are on the cusp of the 2018 mid-term elections, Omega Men must exercise leadership in order to change our political landscape and empower others. Omega Men have always led the charge for social justice and voter empowerment since November 17, 1911.
Secondly, I ask each Brother to reclaim four Brothers in the name of our Founders’. This year the State will implement new innovative programs to reach our reclaimable Brothers. We are powerful beyond measure, and together we can obtain unparalleled heights through reclamation.
Finally, become a mentor to a younger Brother and find a young man in your community to mentor. Our youth in our communities across the State are seeking positive minded Men to mentor them. It is our responsibility and obligation to assist the next generation to adulthood. Leadership and mentoring are action words.
Throughout the history of Omega in Georgia, those that came before us; Brother Robert Church, Brother Arthur Owens and Brother William “Bill” Bryant only asked one thing of those who followed….Lead through your commitment and service to our communities through Omega. We have a responsibility to all who have walked before us to continue the great successes of the past. Our communities look to Omega Men to lead through these difficult times….and LEAD WE MUST!
Know that your GA State Council is here to serve you. We stand at the ready line to assist with any and every challenging issue.
May GOD continue to bless you and your families, and bless the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, nearest our heart!
Thank you, again for allowing me the opportunity to serve in this capacity.
