De Kalb Councilman Willie C. Betts readying for retirement | The Daily Phalanx
It has been brought to our attention (The Daily Phalanx) through our sources, that CM Willie Betts is ready to lay it down after serving the citizens of De Kalb for over twenty years on the City Council. Mr. Betts states that he has been waiting on someone to step up and become the leader that De Kalb needs. He even wanted to resign earlier this year but didn’t due to lack of representation. Betts also stated that this would be his last year on the council. Apparently, I take it that his seat will be up for re-election in March. The Daily Phalanx has reached out to Mr. Betts so that we may get an official interview of the outgoing, long-time councilman. If you see Mr. Betts around town, thank him for his courage to stand in the gap for De Kalb, when many others were strung out on drugs or plain scared to represent their community.
