As Donald Davis again takes the presidential reigns of the Washington County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, he's got two goals in mind - rebuilding and revitalizing.
"First we've got to get the community together," said Davis, 64, of North Jonathan Street. "And then we can tackle the problems. It's not fair for young people to keep seeing us being lax in our duties."
In addition to fighting drug abuse, Davis, a former president from the 1980s, wants to focus on minority employment.
"There are jobs in this city we don't get too many chances at," he said. "A lot of young people are getting ready to graduate from school. In order to make a decent living, they've got to leave town. It shouldn't be that way."
