“We know that the eviction moratorium is coming to an end in DeKalb County and we want to do our part to keep residents in their homes,” Davis Johnson said in a press release. “I am personally inviting all District 5 tenants and landlords who are interested, to join us at this important meeting.”

District five covers the southeastern corner of the county, including Lithonia, Stonecrest and Redan.
