In this episode of the Athens News podcast, join your host Melissa Carter as we dive deep into the pressing issues and exciting developments within our community.


First up, we're alerting Athens-Clarke County residents about a significant fraud alert involving Reveckeyo 'Ra' Hill, accused of orchestrating fraudulent vehicle loans through H&P Auto Brokers. With 14 active felony warrants for Theft by Deception and Identity Fraud, the local police are urging anyone with information or those affected to come forward. This story is a critical reminder of the importance of vigilance in our community.


Then, we shift gears to discuss the latest from Athens-Clarke County's work session meetings, where themes of community building, safety, and homelessness were at the forefront. Discover how ACCGov's Strategic Plan refresh aims to address these key issues, focusing on behavioral health, youth development, and a detailed plan to combat homelessness with a $2.83 million funding recommendation. Yet, with resource requests totaling over $6.5 million, find out how the Housing and Community Development Department plans to bridge this gap.


Plus, with the local election and primary on the horizon this May 21st, we'll give you all the details on the candidates and key races to watch, including the Democratic Primary for District 10 in the U.S. House of Representatives and the hotly contested race for Clarke County Sheriff. Learn about the platforms of the candidates vying for your vote and how these elections could shape the future of Athens.


And finally, we haven't forgotten about Spring Cleaning! Discover unique tips that not only help you declutter but also benefit local businesses in Athens. It's a win-win for everyone involved.
