The Local Take Talks To ABL Honoree Thomas Dortch

May 7, 2017

This edition of The Local Take, I talk with Thomas Dortch, past chairman of the Atlanta Business League (ABL).  Most often we speak with Mr. Dortch about the ABL but this time we talk about his receiving the League Leadership award at the 39th Annual CEO Appreciation Luncheon. 

On the April 29 edition of The Local Take on WCLK, I spoke with former U. S. Ambassador to Venezuela Charles Shapiro about the World Affairs Council and their Sixth Annual Health Summit taking place in Atlanta on May 8.

I spoke last week on The Local Take on WCLK with Marilyn Winn of Women on the Rise about the new Marijuana Law #17-01152 in Atlanta.

This law seeks to eliminate prison and felony charges from being applied to citizens who are apprehended with small amounts of marijuana. Research conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union/ACLU shows that while Americans use marijuana at the same rates, black people are 3.73 times more likely to be arrested and charged for marijuana use. 

Listen to 91.9 WCLK Saturday, April 8 at 7:30 a.m. for The CheckUp With Dr. Courtney Shelton, MD.  This program provides common sense conversation about medical issues that affect you and your loved ones.
