Melissa Carter wins seat on Atlanta Police LGBT Advisory Board


Melissa Carter, former co-host of the Bert Show on Q100 and columnist for the GA Voice — and soon-to-be columnist for Huffington Post — got the votes needed to become the newest member of the Atlanta Police LGBT Advisory Board.

At Monday's meeting of the board, three applicants were voted on and each received two votes. In addition to Carter, DeKalb County high school teacher Charlie Stadtlander and Matthew Robison, assistant dean of students at Georgia State University hoped to become the newest member of the board. A seat became open after Molly Simmons resigned in August.
