The Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce, which was to host to the speech via Zoom, said it will be rescheduled after July 4.

Paul had planned to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic dominates all aspects of the city and its residents’ lives. Reopening of city facilities, which expand in July, was another topic on his agenda. The economic climate and methods to help struggling small businesses also were up for discussion.
