     ANNOUNCEMENTS  April 6, 2014

      Great Candidate Gathering!
Over 90 people gathered on April 1, 2014 to
meet and hear from local candidates.  We thank
all the candidates for participating:  
David Ralston, Sam Snider, Steve Gooch,
J C Sanford, Danny Hall, Mark Simmons,
Charlie Paris, Mitchell Morgan, Travis Crouch,
Joe Waldrop, and Leon Watkins.  

    We were also glad to
    have Paul Deese
    (School Board
    candidate) and
    representatives for
    Karen Handel and
    Doug Collins with us,
as well as  Bernard Fontaine, who is running
against Congressman Collins for the 9th
District US House seat.   

We also thank our volunteers, without whose
help we would have never gotten this event off
the ground -- Rita Odom, Don and Barbara
Murray, June Harrison, Joyce
Barrett,  Kathy Simmons, and
Jerry Tuso.  Thank you also to
Bill Kokaly with Doug Collins's
campaign, who got there early
and helped hang a banner, put
out signs for the meeting, and set up our
microphone.

The voters decide who will run the county for
the next four years.  We and others just provide
opportunities for you to find out more about
these candidates.  Thank you for your interest
and for being there.  See some pictures below,
