Dallas County District Attorney to participate in reading program

District Attorney Michael Jackson will participate in a reading program at one of his jurisdictions on Friday.

Jackson will participate in C.H.O.I.C.E. (Choosing to Help Others in Our Community Excel) with Short the Squirrel on Friday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Choice Youth Resource Center in Uniontown.

C.H.O.I.C.E. is hosting a community book fair. Free lunch, books, popcorn, cotton candy will be provided to the kids.

Uniontown is in Perry County, one of five Counties in the Fourth Judicial District that Jackson represents. The other four are Dallas County, Bibb County, Hale County and Wilcox County.

“One of the most important events I will be involved in since I became District Attorney,” Jackson said. “Reading books develops kids’ minds and opens up a whole new universe to them.”
