I've been in DeKalb County now for four weeks, and I'm starting to learn a few things.In week one, I learned there are two mayors here, not just one mayor and one county executive. That might not sound like a big deal, but when you holler out who is the mayor and the answer is Jimmy Poss in some instances that could be the wrong answer.For example, if one were referring to the county mayor instead when writing a cutline for a picture after-the-fact.It becomes even more important if one is a convicted felon and the other a pillar of the community. I know, these days they can often be one and the same depending on who gets caught but speaking relatively in the definitive you can get the picture.I attended my first meeting of the county commission, which is headed by the county mayor and not the city.
